    More poor writing, however.


    "....it holds about 80,000 pounds". (referring to the trailer itself.)

    As an ex-broadcaster, it drives me nuts. Get the info right, for cryin' out loud.

    Hoping the driver thrives.

    Yeah, they also talked about "gas" being spilled. But they got what they wanted. They got their drama across. . .

    My hat is off to all those on the rescue team!
     
    48Packard Thanks this.

    This is why I HAVE TO HAVE a way to break glass handy and secure (in case of rollover or submersion accident).

    If no one had heard him, no happy ending.

    Other than the weight and gas issue, I feel she wrote an excellent article. She gave the facts as they were given to her and did not start putting excessive blame on the driver. Just my opinion, of course!
