“The Volvo 770 has all the qualities that are important to us in a highway tractor,” said Max Fuller, U.S. Xpress chairman. “We chose the 770 after running Volvo’s demo units for about six weeks. Our drivers were ecstatic about the comfortable ride, the quiet cab, and the overall roominess and storage space. Today, taking care of business means taking care of drivers.”
The driver involved in Humboldt Broncos bus crash last April, Jaskirat Singh Sidhu, was sentenced to serve eight years in prison. He will be deported back to his native India after the sentence is served.
