    Hope this works, This wasn't the truckers fault.

    DALLAS -A deadly accident that will most likely close a major Dallas freeway for the rest of the morning may have been caused by a drunken driver.
    It involved seven vehicles in a chain reaction and tied up traffic on southbound I-35E about 5 am in Dallas this morning. Those killed were in a car that hit a retaining wall.

    Southbound I-35E was backed up for miles, and some impatient drivers -- including at least one DART bus -- were exiting the wrong way on a freeway on-ramp at Clarendon Drive until police posted a car at that ramp.

    Death of a driver. Bet this driver will have this put on his record, even though he was not aaactively involved in the accident/wreck.

    Did anyone notice in the right hand side of that link in the "Most Popular" column. The story of the dead body found in the bob-tail truck. Wonder what happened there?
    Trucker,no doubt was involved there. Murdered or murderer. My guess is the driver of this truck was jacked-up and murdered in a local truck stop. He was then stuffed back in his truck to be dumped later and his truck would have conveniently made it down to Mexico.

    Drivers be careful out there this stuff happens all the time. Make sure you park in secure areas as often as you can.

    So far they are not releasing much in the way of info, so it is still unclear who was who on this one. The driver did have blood on his clothes though also, now who knows if he is really the driver or not.

    We stopped at one of those roadside rest areas with no bathrooms one time in Iowa where a p/u truck pulled out of and a red car pulled in front of us, the guy kept looking like he was watching for something, then the white p/u pulled up in the back of us. We finished eating and hightailed it out of there. Don't know if they were legit or not, but there was plenty of room to pull off ahead of us or over on the other side, so who knows.

    We also never went anywhere without the otherone. It seems like there are too many women coming up missing also from TS or otherwise to be safe.

    I hope he is able to stay in the clear since the blue car ran under his truck and cut it in half; guess he lived. It was the ones in a cadillac who bounced off of it who didn't. I'm not sure how many cars were involved in the speeding to begin with. Stupidity and drinking don't mix.
