    I can't post links or pics, so maybe someone who can will.
    Bullhauler laid it over on I-75 just south of Cartersville.
    Man, I got up at 0400 in Wildwood (just north of Chattanooga) just to miss the ATL traffic and then this. 75 will be shut down until noon.

    Wait. So those cows were killed inhumanely?

    I'd think that Atlanta DOT would be bullish on that sort of thing.

    At the worst spot at the worst time. There's no good reason to lay a truck over in the middle of a dry interstate.

    Like the guy in Nashville this morning that may have been drinking: good reason-bad idea.
