Tracy Morgan Crash

Truck Driver Reportedly Says ...

'It's My Road. Move Or Get Hit'

The driver of the 18 wheeler who slammed into Tracy Morgan's limo Friday night was reportedly a road hog and proud of it, tweeting "Trying to win more than lose!  Driving trucks for a living.  It's my road.  Move or get hit! #Walmart."

Kevin Roper turned himself in after being charged with death by auto.  He was released a short time later.  James McNair was killed in the crash.  Tracy remains in critical condition and he'll be in the hospital for a while.

The New York Daily News spotted what they say is Roper's tweet.  A short time later Roper's twitter account became private.

A friend of Roper's told the Daily News the account was the real deal, although Walmart disputes it.

Roper showed no signs of slowing down before crashing into the limo ... though he swerved at the last minute.

Truck drivers are some of the most disgusting ignorant uneducated people on earth. I am not at all surprised one would make an ignorant comment like this. Yes I have basis on this I screen truck drives daily background mvr employment verification daily on drivers and every day they never fail to surprise or disgust me.

My Father was a trucker for 30 years, the company he worked for pushed them to the limits on the number if hours they worked in a day. Truckers put up with a lot of stupid motorists who have no regards for a semi who can't stop on a dime. What happened in this case was tragic, but I seriously DOUBT he was not going to stop intentionally.
