Happend not far from my house. Pickup crossed the comedian from the west bound side and and hit a east bound Landstar truck head on. Knocked the front end off of the tractor. Axle and all. The front end fron the pickup actually flew back onto the westbound lanes, including its motor and tranny. Pickup driver was ejected from the rear of the cab. Almost made me sick to see it. Haven't heard much on the landstar driver.

Video in the link. Slow to load but shows some of the aftermath.
