Icy Pile-up

Uploaded by: minou

Friday October 26, 2012


Caption: Near Agate, CO, at least 9 semis were involved in a pile-up. Only one minor injury as far as I read. All west bound traffic was closed almost all day. Thank goodness we were traveling east. It appeared that one of the Fed-ex double trailer trucks lost control on black ice going downhill and the rest was history.

Oh, yes..the news was full of this crash for
hours. So lucky no one got killed, as there
were a couple smaller vehicles involved with
all those big trucks, too! Glad you were not
among them! I think your shot is better than
most of the ones that were on the news, Mara!
