I ride myself, I try to keep "situation awareness" at all times but sometimes things get beyond your control

His only chance is if the NH State Police can determine that something on the truck broke causing him to swerve into their lane. Otherwise, get a rope

Somebody who’s likely going out of business and possibly facing jail time.

From one of the links, "Zhukovskyy was questioned at the scene of Friday's crash and allowed to return to Massachusetts."

In a situation like this, wouldn't (or shouldn't) the police have done an on-the-spot alcohol test?

Common sense dictates that a field sobriety test should have been administered, and maybe one was. I'm guessing that the scene was so horrific that the police overlooked administering such a test. But I'm guessing.

Oh, but make sure your Corvette has a front plate, or face a $150 fine.
