If you listen closely, the DOT guy said something about him being a diabetic. It was about the time he jumped over the fence at 3:13.

Obviously a little more going on than just falling asleep at the wheel. If he drove as well as he climbs trees/fences, this never would of happened. Tow truck driver needs training, opens door on initial approach and driver flies off. He could of had a weapon and assaulted tow truck operator, at very least. Seems that, the big bad crew-cab duallie needed stopping. You can run, but you cant hide, as long as vehicle not stolen............

There's a huge difference between "sleeping" and passed out. Clearly this dude was heavily OUID and should never have been allowed to drive off, if it was possible to detain him. Maybe it wasn't. But a quick grab of the ignition key would have prevented the carnage that followed.

Umm, OUID much? Still trying to figure out what the DOT worker was doing, waking him up and letting him drive off. Why was law not onscene? Gonna be some liability on that worker, I predict
