I dont get it. The boat is still on the trailer... If the boat is on the trailer, and the trailer isnt attached to the truck. What happened?

Did it come off after the accident?

Driver kills two and injures 9. Gets 20 citations and rightfully so. Trailer comes off the ball of his Truck.
No trailer safety chains. No winch stand, winch, strap, bow stop, bow safety chain. No brakes on the trailer. Probably the incorrect ball hitch size. Just a boat sitting on a trailer.

How big was the boat? Why would they charge him with these things?

Motor carrier permit required
Operating a CMV without a CDL
No fuel tax permit

This one is a good lesson considering hardly anybody uses tie-downs in the back...

Loose or unfastened tiedown

Those charges would point he was being paid to haul the boat = CDL

Could be wrong but considering the carnage for the ignorance...no sympathy for the o/o of the truck as it was all avoidable.

Too bad so many people were killed and hurt

This is sad!! May the souls of the deceased rest in peace, and I'm wishing the injured a speedy recovery.
