    Saw the wreck going south bound, the pictures speak for themselves. Nothing left of the tractor. HazMat teams investigating.

    "A truck driver slammed into a Walmart truck that was parked along northbound I-15 just after 3:50 a.m. at California Highway Mile Marker 166.5, between Cima Road and Nipton Road, according to CHP."

    Might not have been a Walmart tractor, I was awestruck by the carnage myself, and also focusing on the rubber necker's in front of me.

    They said the driver of the wal mart truck that was
    Parked on the side of the road and the 2 passengers that
    We're with him were all ok.
    Why would wal-mart have 3 people in the truck.
     
    KillingTime, x1Heavy and FerrissWheel Thank this.

    Western Express has a Walmart account? Sounds more like a CRE truck is pulling a Walmart trailer. IDK any other information on both trucking companies would be appreciated?
     
    FerrissWheel Thanks this.

    Who here thinks the safety triangles would have made a difference? At the very least the truck driver had his 4ways going. Bad situation for all the parties involved.

    Be safe out there.

    I don't either.

    Didn't recognize any insignia on the other truck, trailer was plain.


    I fixed my post a bit. Thinking about the headline.
