    I sat for 30 minutes on the southbound side. They let us crawl through on the shoulder. The northbound side was parked. What a mess that was.

    Tried to see if I still had the fiasco on my dashcam but I didn’t. SD card only saves the previous 6 hours unless you hit the “save” button. I was already through houston and back home in Dallas before I thought about it. Flatbed trailer was upside down, his truck was on its side and the car was T boned pretty good.

    All this because one of the cars lost control while trying to evade debris. I learned early on that the only option is to brake and lessen the impact. I’ve been tested a few times over the years and had success. Really bad things happen when you swerve that wheel.
