    OH my goodness how in the world did that van driver survive. And why are all those trucks driving so fast and close together that they couldn't stop for traffic at a stop light...

    Three of the trucks were stopped for the light only one did not stop because of fast driving and not paying attention.

    That explains it but he must have been really moving to cause that much damage...

    The van driver was very lucky but his bank account will grow after this plus the truck drivers might have a good pay day. From what the news said he was going pretty fast.

    Thanks's HiBallin for the report and the news link...I'm surprised that at 2:30 PM...there wasn't a cop with radar just south of that light..( There usually is )..There is a school on the northbound side and " school Zone " speed limit that time of day...He had to have been motoring at a good clip in order to do that must damage..Very fortunate that no one was killed

    No and I wonder if anyone at the scene did and if they knew what it was.
