Semi driver charged with vehicular homicide following crash

Following a horrific fatal crash, which happened in May in Reading, Pennsylvania, one semi driver has several charges against him after three people were killed. Furthermore, the fiery accident happened on Interstate 78 when Vincente Espinvera was driving east when he failed to slow despite several warning signs miles in advance, and proceeded to hit vehicles.
