LA Times Story via Drudge since I can't link to a story directly.
I am very suspicious. More victims of environmental alarmism?
Curious question, one which I’d like to hear more about too.
This is a terrible tragedy.
Prayer up for the victim’s families.
Just seems like a regular bus to me.
Pic shows a FedEx Freight truck involved.
Lawyers are likely near-rioting to get the lawsuits filed at this very moment.
Drudge is now reporting that there are 10 dead in this crash.
Sorry-I misread your headline.
Sounds like FedEx driver was at fault...sleepy driver, or one of those ‘diverse’ hires?
God have mercy on them.
I am sure it is, but honestly I haven’t seen this kind of damage without some contributing element, NTSB should be investigating, but didn’t see a note about it in the story.
They should be on site.
Ntsb h no doubt will show. Up but the stAte MAIT team will write the traffic collision report.
I read that there was a third car involved in the crash, although its occupants were uninjured. I was wondering if perhaps that car cut off the truck or did something that made the driver lose control. Or possibly he had a heart attack or some other sudden medical event. That does happen, unfortunately.
I heard this AM that it was thought the Fedex truck was trying to avoid a car that had cut him off.
One of the saddle tanks on the Fedex truck must have been split open to cause that conflagration.
I have seen tanks rupture before, this is more than I have ever seen except in the case where no one was trapped and the fire department let it burn.
