    A radio
    A radio report here said that particular truck was an armoured car.

    I agree that a lot of truck drivers that run that area don't belong on the road .. however a larger percentage of 4 wheelers don't either ... too many are used to doing whatever actions they want with zero to little chance of getting caught it seems.. I truly feel sorry for the good drivers out there who are terrorized daily by some of the insanely aggressive drivers

    Y'all need to quit defending truck drivers about everything immediately. Sure we don't know the exact cause of the accident, but what we do know is that it involved 7 vehicles, 4 of which were semis. So, barring a meteor landing on them, at least one of the semis was following too close and/or not paying attention. I'm not saying a truck driver caused the wreck, but at least 1 of them caused it to be bigger.

    I am a "Good Driver" in a car and I am a "Truck Driver"If a situation comes up that Death is swinging his scythe for someone then one of three things are or will happen... 1- The obvious, 2- Everyone keeps cool and managed to get clear.small hysteria inducing amounts of damage too tiny relatively speaking to talk about, or there is not enough time; too much physics and whatever the righteousness the drivers may justify thier actions after the fact and over again in the courthouse a year later.

    There is one thing Car Drivers depend on. No matter what happens. THAT is the insurance jackpot waiting fo collect. In fact I think there might be enough money (About 250000 to 500000) to establish a attack vector by cause a collection of that money by the criminal seeking such a payout vs a 18 wheeler.

    If you do not have a good camera on your forward windsheld gass...I will not hear of any excuses,. Put on on there, today.

    Im leaning towards the Armored Truck. Itw Looks like they can flip him back up and tow to shop to put a new shaft on among other things.

    I am not defending anyone in that piple. I wait until actual factual information comes out.

    Ignore the comments. most people have no clue what it takes to operate a commercial vehicle. Statistically speaking, based on real world crash data, 80% of all truck vs car crashes are the results of the 4 wheeler making the mistake. Stay safe and leave an out.
