    Looks like UPS Freight is pulling a Con-way trailer.

    Until you see the Con-way tractor!

    Most of the body panels disintegrated.

    It's truly amazing no one died. Especially the driver in the Con-way tractor.

    I'd like to know what actually happened.

    I am surprised that the Con-Way driver made it out alive. I drove by this accident the other night and you could not even see the tractor it was buried into the UPS freight trailer. Glad both drivers are alright.

    Glad to hear everyone was all right. If you look at the news article you can see that the overnight trailer is completely torn apart.

    I did hear from a Con-Way driver that their driver was fine just a bandage on his right forearm and a cut over his left eye. I was also told he ran into the UPS Freight at 55 and the UPS was doing about 10 mph. Both drivers are very very fortunate to come out of this with their lives.
