In 2007, the History Channel launched a show documenting the long and dangerous journeys truckers take to remote areas of Canada and Alaska. Ice Road Truckers was a fan favorite as viewers tuned in to watch these drivers navigate over frozen lakes and rivers to deliver supplies to small towns. 

In 2012, fans were introduced to Darrell Ward whose motto was, "Any road, any load." Risking their lives for the job was certainly a theme of this show. However, after wrapping Season 10 of the show, the reality star was killed in August 2016. In regards to what happened to the Ice Road Truckers star, Darrell was sadly involved in a fatal plane crash at the age of 52.
