This wreck causes me to ask a number of questions.  Primarily, was a 21 year old adequately trained to drive a tractor trailer loaded with logs?

Hopefully, Mr. Hall will recover but head injuries can be life altering.  Finding adequate medical care will be critical and the cost of treating a head injury can be significant.
