    The van trailer & truck overturned happened AFTER the tanker spilled the sludge. The driver of the tanker , spilled his sludge ....then drove away , leaving the scene. But, HE WAS CAUGHT !:chairshot:

    What is up with all these drivers leaving the scene of accidents. He had to know he was losing his load and yet he decided to keep going and hope he didn't get caught. what a dumba$$:duh:

    The two questions that spring to mind are:
    #1- Is he a LEGAL citizen of the USA.

    #2- Does he have a LEGAL CDL? This could be the reason he ran?

    I've noticed that the MSM doesn't report any details when "minorities" are involved.

    Isn't that "funny" but, TRUE. They won't the freight moved with the "cheapest" drivers they can find & after the accidents -- they question SAFETY !
    You know maybe if they questioned safety in the hiring process & paid for experienced , properly trained drivers these things wouldn't happen as often.:hide:

    Too true Blown Load, too true. I guess all you need any more is a pulse and you're in. Sad but it's only gonna get worse. Just look at thaty accident that happened two weeks ago in California. They still haven't found several of the drivers of the several of the trucks that burned up in that fire . But strangely enough they haven't found their remains either. I wonder where they were coming from and going to.

    Coal Haulers around these parts used to be notorious for losing loads in the roads and hauling a$$... I was on Al 195 between Jasper and Double Springs, Al. one night, many years ago, and ran into a load of coal left in the road by a coal hauler with a broken tailgate. They knew they had lost it but opted to duck and run to keep from having to cough up the cost of the clean-up...

    Some things never change...

    Yeah, wait til the Mexican trucks come in and start changing their oil over storm drains.
