An illegal immigrant from Ghana was driving a tractor-trailer that rear-ended a car on the Pennsylvania Turnpike in Westmoreland County on Thursday, killing a Honduran diplomat.

The truck driver, Sam P. Thompson, 32, of Gaithersburg, Md., an employee of Transcare Systems Inc., of Bowie, Md., was arraigned on multiple criminal charges, including homicide by vehicle, following vehicles too closely, driving at an unsafe speed, careless driving, speeding and reckless driving.

Where's the "Illegals Kill" pinglist?
What a loss - she was a babe ....
"An illegal immigrant from Ghana was driving a tractor-trailer that rear-ended a car"
Sam P. Thompson, of Gaithersburg, MD? The same person? What are they doing to the trucking company that hired him?
How did he get a CDL, even with that white-bread name?
State police Trooper Richard Mahokey said Thompson is an illegal immigrant from Ghana who had been facing deportation. Mahokey said U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement asked yesterday that Thompson be detained by police.
Sounds like we knew this illegal was here (another catch and release?) but were unable to get rid of him before he ended up killing a very lovely young woman.
Probably bought it from the fine employees at the Illinois DMV.
Have they run out of Americans to kill?

"Sometimes", what an understatement. Wasn't it Maryland where the illegal, who was a known drunk, killed a marine home on leave and the only reason he wasn't in jail was because some cop was to sorry to file the correct paper work???
Transcare Systems Inc., of Bowie, Md., You better have every I doted and T crossed for the DOT are on their way.
Attractive young lady. May she rest in peace.
It's an illegal from Ghana, who killed a diplomat who was here legally from Honduras.
What an ignorant statement.
Your opinion - keep it. Sehr schlecht - too bad.
Not an opinion - it's a fact.
One's an illegal from a non-Hispanic country, one's not here illegally - and thusly not "one of their own".
It's an ignorant statement, and an obvious one at that. Not you necessarily - though your retort leaves that yet TBD.
Apparently you like it crass. Have some. Heh, heh.
Actually, I like it to make sense, or at least seem as though it's not some drunken redneck doing the typing - which is why I will bid you good night...
Read his profile and you'll realize why arguing with someone like this is a total waste of time, energy, and neuronal activity.
Wow. Makes more sense now... :-D
Have a good one...
Ah..there's the FR I've come to hate. RTFS fool.
Time for FR to start running off these racist fools, or the good folks will leave.
You know, that's an excellent point. Did you read his profile page? Apparently we who know how to spell cannot even begin to imagine the grandeur and antiquity of the ancient Nordic gods he believes in. They're the reason he is superior to an educated Central American lady.
Somebody ping the mods.
I was thinking the same thing. We really have no idea who the hell is in our country.
Buel Young, spokesman for the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration, said that based on a state Attorney General's opinion issued a few years ago, transportation officials don't ask whether a person applying for a license is in the United States legally.
PC bullsh!t will kill us all, as well as kill the country.
And, not only is it bigger than both of us; and it can't be killed, but it has ALREADY multiplied!
Otherwise, I would say, "it's bigger than both of us, so quick: kill it before it multiplies."
After reading this line in the article, I got curious and looked it up-
"Buel Young, spokesman for the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration, said that based on a state Attorney General's opinion issued a few years ago, transportation officials don't ask whether a person applying for a license is in the United States legally.
Someone applying for a Maryland driver's license must show proof of identity, age and state residency, Young said."
This seems to be a ruling by the former Attorney General of Maryland Joe Curran Jr.- a DEMOCRAT!
Good, now that we see eye to eye about this issue - we know who the true conservative is. Me. Liberalism abounds, even on this website. i'm surprised you and the other liberal have not cried foul about the illegal who did the dastardly deed.
My daughter was inhured severely in a car accident by illegals - they refused to call 911 for fear of deportment. Someone else called. while she was in the ambulence another idiot - illegal of course slammed into the ambulence at 50 mph.
So you two guys go figure.
Have a good liberal day, liberal guy.
Could be the descendant of a freed slave who returned to Africa, like many in Sierra Leone and Liberia.
Consider spell check. You'll still look like a loon, but a literate loon.
Good, at least you are picking up on the humor - not unique. Heh, heh.
Meat and potatoes time, boys and girls. An illegal alien, regardless of race, or origin kills anyone, from anywhere. you arguing with me is ridiculous, because it is as though you condone the behavior, now where do you stand. Recant that, Mr. less than unique.
What are you going to do about the situation ivolving the illegal alien?
Obviously nothing, like myself you are powerless. People die on our highways everyday, and I'm supposed to render to some employee of a foreign government some form of compassion?
What about the tens of thousands of automobile fatalities in this country?
You have lost the scope of the situation, you want to cry about a person, who was legally here, a lawful entrant into this country, who was killed by an illegal alien, and I'm supposed to ignore the Americans who were killed by illegal aliens in this country, specifically in car accidents, and have compassion for only one person - give me a break.
The reason you are done with me is you inability to see or focus on the "big picture."
Too bad for you - get a new scrip'.
Why do I get the feeling that “illegal alien” Thompson will just disappear? This story bears looking into for connections to the situation in Honduras. Maybe nothing but it seems a little Arkancidey to me.
