    Man, this sounds like the blue/white guys G***f transpo. I hated "training" some of their drivers years àgo.
    "Lead" driver domed out 1st load on the rack @Chevron San Jose, OW on trailer dolly @ San Leandro scale, and popped the diesel tank @ landfill....ALL ON FIRST LOAD!
    My fault for "not" training lead truck meister w/15 more years than me.
    Yeah, yer right, my fault.

    Did you guys hear about the Williams Tank Lines truck spilling 8000 gallons of fuel in Modesto, CA? This was yesterday at about 2:45 am.

    I feel really bad for that driver. He rolled his truck coming to an on-ramp, and destroyed all of the tanks on truck and trailer. I'm very glad he's alive and in one piece. Hopefully the investigation does not implicate him as being at fault.

    Wow. Hopefully he wasn't negligent and keeps his job. I've known a few guys that have been fired from Williams for WAY less.

    Yeah, they don't fire anybody over there these days, unless they don't like you on a personal level. There's guys who have cross dumped, and who call in sick once a week who still work there. But they'll write you up for dumb #### and take your bonus for the stupidest mistake.

    It's says they were working on the tank and performing a pressure test. Hell not even the firefighters who went in after him made it out. They collapsed of heat exhaustion, so idk.

    Anybody here remember top loading way back in the days before vapor recovery? Like in Chico or Crescent City or Pasco?
