Truckers and citizens alike are demanding clemency for the driver of an 18-wheeler sentenced to 110 years in prison for causing a huge crash that killed four on a Colorado interstate. 

More than 4.4 million people have now signed a petition urging Governor Jared Polis to lessen the driver’s sentence and social media users are calling on truckers to boycott Colorado.
