Trucker Charged with Manslaughter in Big Rig Crash


Second-degree manslaughter was the charge that commercial truck driver Thomas Wallace pled to in a New York criminal court this week, telling the judge that he was guilty of causing 33 year old Julie Stratton’s death.

The big rig trucker involved in the crash on a busy freeway was not only charged with a crime, he’s now going to serve 5 to 15 years in a state prison for his actions.

In an attempt to fight boredom, or to just stay awake, trucker Wallace was not just listening to music or drinking coffee: facts revealed that he was busy watching pornography on his laptop computer when the crash happened that killed Stratton.
