I hope you are supporting him

Scott Humble Greg Weatherly

I support that driver.. and thank God he is alive🇺🇸🇺🇸

Shields Raymond Jr.

The driver did the right thing by trying to get that load away from the “protesters”. Imagine if they started opening his valves. And tampering with his trailer. A few weeks ago he was labeled a hero and an essential worker. Now “peaceful protesters” decided to “peacefully attack“ and “peacefully” beat the crap out of this driver for doing his job supporting his family. Hopefully KAG stands behind this driver like the rest of us hazmat drivers do.

Praying for all the great truck drivers in the nation these times are dark ahead of us.

He’s already getting fired regardless.

Your driver should have grabbed another gear!

You should be providing a lawyer and fighting for the release of your driver. He was on the interstate, went around no barricade, and did a masterful job of avoiding protesters in the roadway. The truck driving community is watching your response, and will respond accordingly. This country depends on drivers to eat, work, and play, and if drivers are treated unfairly, we all pay...

Watching the Footage From West Coast...The Driver Slowed Down Immediately. Truckers Need to Be Protected and Retain Their Jobs.

what a half assed bullshit statement. fuck you guys.


Your full of shit talking about caring for employees 😂😂😂

Is that your guy on I35w?

It appears one of your drivers just barreled into thousands of protesters on the closed 35W bridge in Minneapolis.

You honor them by trying to plow them over?

The CEO is Bruce Blaise. Message him.

Trying to take your page down?

So, what is your response to one of your trucks driving through a peaceful protest and injuring people?


A truck with your name on it just plowed into protesters in Minneapolis.

"By driving our trucks into large crowds on closed freeways..."

lol your company in trouble with your rogue driver

Happy Memorial Day from the trucking company that hires sociopaths!

This truck looks familiar.

Do all of ur employees run over ppl?

Is driving a truck into a group of thousands of people standard operating procedure for your company?

Are you planning to address what happened tonight with one of your drivers or just keep deleting comments and hope it all goes away? Because right now you seem to be okay with it. It's been well over an hour, no statement, no apology. Classy!

Saw one of your trucks drive down a closed highway, right through a group of protesters. Not a real good look for your business, now is it? How will you handle this tonight?

That thing where you hide comments. We can play this game all night long.

Why hide the comments? Driving while racist should not be acceptable , specially if you make your intentions clear about hurting/killing people.

When do you plan on making a public statement about what happened in Minnesota?


This company has drivers that are running over protestors
