    Saw the back up but that was it. All the vendors at my stops were talking about the back up and what happened. Thanks for the link. Prays for the driver and his family.

    Inspected 19 times in two years and placed OOS 15 times. I say they had some issues.

    There are pics if you click the link in the original post to this thread. My prayers to the family. That had to be a very scary death since he had to know the whole time what the outcome would be.
