Truck Driver Charged
Court records say 42-year-old White violated commercial truck driving laws requiring at least eight hours of sleep within a certain period of time on the road. Officials said White was hauling a load of bananas to a Wal-Mart distribution center when he attempted to cross over US 71 and collided with another tractor-trailer. The driver of that tractor-trailer, Steven B. Cousineau of Wisconsin was pronounced dead at the scene. The crash caused two other wrecks, but none of the other drivers reported any injuries.
