    Truck ran into median and flipped over. They were still rescuing occupants when I drove by. Took these pics from the video posted on news channel.

    Happend around 10:30. I went back through at 2:44 and they had it all offloaded and cleaned up. Guy was collecting the road cones. The tow truck and wrecked truck were slowly getting off the next exit. That was a super fast clean up!

    This was before the Neville Island bridge, Mt Nebo exit to be exact. The 45 MPH curves are just beyond the bridge.


    It was laid over so gently. It was like he ran off road and parked, then just went to sleep lol. Didn’t spill any cargo because the trailer stayed completely intact. A clean accident if there is such a thing.

    The truck said it didnt sleep well on the last 10 hr break (its driver snores and kept it awake)... So it was going to do a split reset... This looked like a good place to take a 2 hr nap
