Bill Crocker, 46, the trucker who fell asleep in Falmouth at the wheel of his delivery truck on Friday afternoon and slammed into the back of a van, killing 11-year-old Heidi Tobiason of Yarmouth, was, according to his employer, a model employee and a family man who kept a Bible in his truck. State records in Maine and Connecticut show no driving infractions in either state, but Crocker has admitted to having fallen asleep and to have taken antihistimine tablets that cause drousiness and are not to be used when driving. Police are checking his logbook to determine if he had driven longer than the 10 hours allowed without taking a required 8-hour break. Detailed account of Crocker's activities on the day of the fatal crash.
