This is crazy man god bless the family of the individual who was killed in this amazing crash.
This can easily be avoided.
Driving while eating is crazy with an 18 wheeler man are you kidding me?
You only have two hands on on the wheel one to change gears one to drive.
The driver of this isn’t dead but when he wakes up from the hospital he’ll wish he was.
They’re going to lock his ass up for this.

DAVIS, Calif. (AP) – A big rig driver choked on food and lost consciousness on a highway near Sacramento on Thursday morning, leading to a crash that killed one person and injured three others, including the truck driver, the California Highway Patrol said.
The crash occurred around 10:30 a.m. on Interstate 80 near Davis, which is about 15 miles west of Sacramento.
The tractor-trailer driver was in the eastbound lanes when he lost consciousness, drifted onto the right shoulder and then veered sharply to the left, going across the highway and over the center divider, CHP Officer Chris Parker said.
He regained consciousness, but not in time to avoid an oncoming BMW. The vehicles collided head-on and burst into flames. The driver of the BMW died.
The truck driver suffered minor to moderate injuries, including burns, Parker said. He also collided with two other vehicles as his truck went across the highway, leaving two others with minor to moderate injuries.
Authorities haven’t released the identities of the truck driver or the BMW driver.
The highway was shut down in both directions for hours
