    Came across this today in Wisconsin... No police or fire on scene yet. I'd imagine by the time fire department arrived nothing was left of the truck. Driver was standing outside down aways so atleast he got out. 20190719_120835.jpg

    lovesthedrive Is here to help

    Something around the engine got hot. Suppose the oil line broke on the turbo? If it had I would have thought a stain would have been seen during a pretrip

    Got a hot one in the Badger. If I could see the truck, I probably recognize the company. Looks like I-94 south of Milwaukee, and I bet one of those quality Windy City outfits. What, no fire extinguisher before it got to this point? Schmoe,,,
