I expect intoxicated or inebriated in some fashion.  Ditch the scene and sober-up before coming forward because the charges for leaving the scene are much less severe than for DUI.

What are illegal workers from Arizona doing all the way over in Missouri?

No. That's any truck driver who's on meth to stay awake because he's overworked and doesn't want to take a blood test.

How the heck did he roll over toward the inside of the curve? That's some meth-ed up driving.

That's one way to guarantee you never drive again. I know one MO company who kept a driver even after rolling three semis over a five year period. Depending on your relationship with the owner, you can get a second or third chance.

Running from the scene of an accident? That's a permaban right there. And it is the same for his normal driving privileges too.

And it isn't like they don't know who he is. He'll be logged into the e-logs and certainly the company knows who he is.

That was my first thought too.

My bet is he was going too fast for the corner and started leaning to the outside, had an "Oh shiat!" moment and overcorrected. The weight and momentum going back the other way did the rest.

Eh, a lot of trucking companies doing local haul won't bother with making sure the drivers are DOT certified because a truck full of dirt from a pit to a jobsite (or vice versa) is nowhere near as heavily regulated as long haul truck drivers.

If they can get a guy who more or less knows how to drive a truck, they'll put him behind the wheel for 150 bucks a day, and driving big trucks like that  is real easy to fark up

Depends. Eloise are federally mandated for long haul. Local stuff, like port drayage or rock hauling is less heavily regulated. Those guys work normal shifts and sleep at home every night. They're supposed to have a CDL, but not every company owner is that scrupulous

E-LOGS. Not Eloise

This seems as good of a place to put my CSB story from last Sunday.

Driving back to Utah from CA on I-80.  Going east bound, just past Sparks, NV....

It's 2 lanes at that point, and east and west bound are separated by a decent dirt median... I'm driving 80ish in the right lane when I come up to a semi-truck, so I decide to merge to the left lane and pass it...

I merge to the left lane, and... there is a weird light, 2 of them perpendicular, like really really odd to see, so instead of passing the semi, I merged back behind it, back into the slow lane.

Not even 2 seconds later, a car speeds past me going the wrong way in the lane I was going to use to pass that semi truck...
