    See this? Davie, Fl. yesterday. 53 year old, I'm sure was no rookie. I say, had to be a steer tire or medical, we'll never know. Still want to haul gas? This, folks, is EXTREMELY rare, you have any idea how much gas gets hauled in a day with no problems. We use an astonishing 337 MILLION gals. A DAY and it all gets hauled by truck. As long as humans are in control, this is going to happen. You can't have zero risk. All it takes is the media to exploit these situations. No wonder there's a shortage of drivers. RIP, driver.

    Ironically in the Canadian Rockies many fuel haulers are downright aggressive. I’m truly surprised we don’t have massive explosions from crashes. RIP driver

    There is a decelerated curve there for an off ramp. I am willing to go with too much speed and gravity pulled them over.

    My condolences to next of kin

    Reminds of the one that went off between the bridges on I-95 near Baltimore a few years back. That one was weather related however (ice on the road and bridge).

    You know, I've long thought, how stupid this is. Gasoline is one of the most hazardous products we deal with on a daily basis. I heard, if was just invented, it would never have a chance of being allowed today. Then, to transport it in a manner not much different than axxwipe ( which is only hazardous after it's used), is pure idiocy. Tires that can blow, in amongst careless drivers,,,you'd think it would be transported in a different, safer manner.Just dam lucky nobody was under that bridge.
