Traffic was pretty heavy – lots of trucks but when we got to the 234 mile marker, it almost came to a complete halt. About four miles back there were signs about an accident ahead. That was definitely a true statement.
According to state police, the tractor-trailer flipped on its side around 1 a.m. Wednesday. Troopers said the truck's load of plastic pellets had to be unloaded before the truck could be moved.
We finally made our way past this mess and about twenty miles down the road there was a van on fire. It had just happened because the fire department hadn’t arrived yet. There was one patrol car on the scene.
I could do without this kind of excitement when we’re traveling but I’m glad that nobody was hurt.
