    One of the trucks was an XPO but I couldn’t tell if it was a wiggle wagon or a standard 53 footer.
    R.I.P.

    If you go to the comments section for the youtube video a commenter is pleading to have the video removed. I see nothing wrong with what is displayed on the video.

    I have seen hundreds of videos like this and saw no reason for it to be removed. It just showed one truck that had crossed the median and in the West bound ditch with the trailer upright on its wheels sticking into the right lane. As the East bound vehicle taking the video goes past the trailer you can see an XPO trailer on its side. There are no dead bodies shown. The trucks are on fire but you cannot see the XPO truck.

    Basically a driver in a car videoed this seen as they were driving by. Why someone thought the video HAD to be removed is beyond me.

    Probably because there were fatalities and it was still under investigation. That would be my guess.
