Of course, extremely sad, but the (quiet) question many want to know is, who crossed over into who's lane of traffic. Not to minimize any of the tragedy - same result.

I support all first responders, but was this really necessary, ambulances fly up and down 55 all day everyday, from my observation they are never impeded by traffic.

I travel Highway 16 every day. The speed limit is 55, but even if you go 60 cars line up behind you as if they are going to push you off the road so they can get by. The highway patrol are there often and always have someone stopped. Some 18 wheelers are mindful of the speed limit but most are not and barrel through no matter the traffic or the hazard of passing. And then there are the "flashers" that warn oncoming traffic of radar set up after they've passed it.

After all these years I've never seen an 18 wheeler stopped for speeding--just passenger vehicles.

This was a fine young man that had served with honor and distinction. Truly a sad end to his life.
Last Wednesday, JJ had a post about MHP working a line to line project in conjunction with other states promoting travel safety. That article had some of the most heartless, disgusting and ignorant comments regarding MHP enforcing the law. I hope this tragedy will make you think about the actual people doing this job and the risks they take. I wonder how many of these mouths would have the guts, much less the intelligence to do what this trooper was doing when he lost his life.

Trooper was out on a traffic stop on hwy 16 west. The 18 wheeler hit a car that hit the trooper.

I too read the comments about the cops and the weekend thing. I don't think the comments were meant to be personal. It's the thing to do nowadays. We forget cops and teachers and firemen and even the mail carrier are people too. It's their job to do what they do. We get caught up in our own world that's hard enough as it is without having to worry about laws and such. I respect what the trooper did. I pray for everyone who works with people. It can go south on you in a split second. We are the most unpredictable animal on Earth after all.

Has the truck driver been charged ?

People don’t realize that such a large percentage of police deaths are from car crashes. Everyone assumes the dangers they face are bad guys with guns. Maybe once cars drive themselves , policing will be as safe or safer than most other manual labor type jobs.

To the commenter that said they have never seen an 18 wheeler stopped by law enforcement. It has been a minute since I set in the seat of an 18 wheeler. Before I quit for medical reasons, I set in the driver's seat for, off and on, 36 years. The old school drivers would take a new hand, or driver, under their wing to teach the rookie the ropes, so to speak. The top of the list was staying out of trouble with smokey bear. We called them that, but no disrespect was intended. They had a job to do and so did we. There were several, kind of, unwritten rules among truckers and law enforcement when it came to the rules of the road. I won't go into great details but very near the top of that, staying out of trouble with smokey, list was the subject of speed. Keep your speed 5 to 7 miles an hour over the limit, and you could stay out of trouble. Unless, school buses were using the road. School time required a more conservative speed for safety reasons. The last thing a respectable driver wanted on their record was an accident with a school bus. From what I hear now, with the new breed of drivers, it's not like that.

No word on the Truck Driver being jailed. Must have been an accident otherwise the poor guy would’ve in jail. I feel just as sorry for him. He has to live with it the rest of his days.

What update? I was told the 18 wheeler was stopped and a dump truck came around the stopped 18 wheeler and hit the trooper. Kingfish is real damned slow in updating whatever the facts are in this situation.

Regardless, it's a fact that trucks own this highway. Dump trucks, log trucks and other trucks that 'bend in the middle' and require a Class A.

So, now we have a dumptruck passing an 18 wheeler and striking the trooper and we have an 18 wheeler slamming into a car that struck the trooper. And another site has it that Florida HP brought the family home and also says a Ford dealership in the area sent a plane for the family.

If details were not important, nobody would be reading this thread or commenting.

By the way, I'm told his dad played basketball at Delta State back in the sixties.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
