    Anyone know what happened?
    The truck was completely upside down in a straight line with the wheels pointing in the air ?
    Looked like the dome covers were still in place but leaking gasoline all over the highway.
    The fumes were exceptionally strong on the north bound side as I went by but yet they hadn’t cleared people away from the scene from the explosion hazard?

    Whoa, I drove past that today in the North bound lane. Cops and EMT hadn't even showed up yet.

    It was just doing its impression of an armadillo.

    But seriously, I hope nobody got hurt.

    Well you must have been just ahead of me today because the cops were just getting there when I came through north bound?
    It sure looked weird positioned in a straight line on its back with 18 tires pointing up in air.
    Any by the way what are you doing up in my neck of the woods?
    I thought you were home visiting your wife?
    Must be you got all your homework done already? lol

    Yeah, I got it handled...so to speak.

    Just hauled a load of composite decking to Wolf here in Massachusetts.

    Yeah, I did a double take. Never saw a truck like that. Wasn't even mangled from what I could tell. Looked like a puppy rolled over waiting to get scratched.

    Well I’m glad things at least got handled why you were home it’s really tough when you have to handle things your self when your on the road lol
    I said to my wife it looked like a dog that rolled over and was playing dead. 5A46D271-1773-4722-B084-B95A0A2E1FB4.jpeg

    Must have been either empty or just one compartment loaded?

    In that picture you can see how the side deformed from rolling over. The compartment heads caused the tank skin to rip and you can see the liquid pouring out.
