Sad for the guy and his family.
Its a shock that an experienced guy like him can take wrong decisions.

He probably did what anyone of us would do. My take is that he was in the left lane doing well over 100mph and the truck, which was in the right lane, pulled into the left lane. He then probably tried to switch lanes to the right and the truck ened up doing the same thing - so he plowed into the tractor trailer. Could happen to anyone.

Agreed.
But somehow no speed limit doest mean you can do anything, there are slower vehicles on the road, drivers of which may not see you coming so fast.
Remember that brand new M5 crash.
