This is what happens when we let the government run things.  Get the feds out of Federal Express and make it Private Express.

I have never seen any FedEx vehicle driving less than at least 10 mph over the speed limit (regardless of whether it's a 75mph zone or a 25mph zone ). I was surprised to read that the speed was not a factor here.

/Very, very sad for all involved.

And now the spin talents of global corporate entities kicks in...

Here's the story as written by the AP

ORLAND, Calif. (AP) -- A FedEx truck crossed a grassy freeway median in Northern California and slammed into a bus carrying high school students on a visit to a college. At least nine were killed in the fiery crash, authorities said.

Nice details to leave out there, CNN. You wouldn't want FedEx looking like one of their long-haul diesel truck drivers might have been too tired or his truck not properly maintained.

I wonder what percent the damages FedEx is going to pay out are of FedEx's annual profits. Somewhere to the right of the decimal point probably.

Lith: iheartscotch: Ban assault trucks!

No they needed an assault truck to defend themselves!

I think what you're saying is that we need to regulate the fuel tank on assault trucks. Nobody needs more than 5 gallons.

In fact; let's create a registration system! That way, we can keep track of vehicles with gas tanks bigger than 5 gallons.

/ also, we need to regulate cup holders; because, the only use for cup holders is to hold cups
