Almost being in a wreck is ALWAYS better than being in one, of course. On the drive back from Texas to Oregon, my sister and I were almost in this wreck. Literally, if we hadn't stopped at a convenience store right before that mile marker, we would have been in that wreck. Instead (thankfully) we were stuck right behind it for 3 hours. Driving through that spot after they opened the highway was creepy. You could see skidmarks for a solid mile, and part of the guardrail was out, you could tell a car had gone through it.
A runaway truck smashed into 11 other vehicles on Interstate 5 in the mountains north of Los Angeles on Wednesday, injuring 11 people, authorities said.
"foggy conditions were a factor"...yeah, no joke. At the bottom of the hill was zero visibility. We definitely stopped wondering why the cars didn't move out the of the 18wheeler's way once we drove through that spot.
