    Yup. One of Butler Transportation’s trucks is caught in it and from the looks of it a bobtail doing a piggyback job got into the mix as well.
    I bet ice developed on that bridge,and all it took was one driver to screw up!
     
    FerrissWheel and lovesthedrive Thank this.

    lovesthedrive Is here to help

    By the looks of it. There were several drivers screrwing up. If they hadnt screwed up they wouldnt be in the mess with other vehicles.

    One stops short or is forced to by physics.

    The whole conga line instantly wrecks.

    And they want platooning>? HHAHAHAHAHA.

    Going westbound, you drop off the hill, down to the bridge and level off. Road was probably slushy down the hill then some ice as they hit the bridge deck. Those following too close never had a chance to get stopped. Whamo, crunch, boffo.

    This is going to continue to get worse as long as these idiots in these vehicles keep trying to drive like they’re in a NASCAR race by drafting everybody

    The surprising thing is that in spite of the pileup no one broke thru the bridge and went for a bath into the Missouri!
     
    FerrissWheel, x1Heavy and Bud A. Thank this.
