    SLC Trucker and the Group:


    Thank You for the picture. I knew that there had to be something there.

    I did'nt read anything about it on Google or Fire station web page or the News afterwards though, funny thing.

    I was driving my Ford Chariot class B motorhome that day and I was sure glad that I stopped ino the Rock Springs Truckstop that evening or else I probably would have been pushing on in order to get in to Utah.

    Hello Leftlane Larry:


    I really did appreciate the photo. I wondered what happened there. It had I-80 all tied up for at least 12 hours when It happened. I was on my way out to Utah and the Grand canyon in my Ford Class B Motorhome when I heard about this accident, then got delayed at the Flying J because of It. I'm just glad that I did'nt get stuck in the traffic. It seemed to me and most people back then that It was probably a lot worse a Truck accident.

    I just made a typo error while I was rushing to finish my Post. I did'nt know that there was an edit button on the thread.
