Today I came upon the aftermath of an accident on I80 WB Omaha. I'd passed through 10 to 15 minutes before this occurred.


When I came through about 2 hours later wreckers were on scene but still only passable on the shoulder with traffic at a standstill over 7 miles. Preliminary investigation shows a car came into Super Ego trucks lane causing him to maneuver to avoid hitting them but over corrected and overturned. 4 people sent to the hospital with minor injuries have since been released. Another great example of how quickly things can change due to others actions.

Glad no one was killed in that mess.

Yesterday on I20 in Mississippi, I was passed by a bobtail tractor. I don’t know what happened to him, but after he was a comfortable distance ahead of me he signaled to pull onto the shoulder. Then I saw a big bunch of dirt go flying, the driver overcorrected, came back almost sideways across both lanes just in front of a car and then miraculously got his tractor back under control. I couldn’t believe that he didn’t roll over or go completely off the road into the trees. I definitely had a front row seat to that one. Thankfully it ended without incident but I believe that driver needed clean underwear after that one.

Like Rob says, it’s amazing how fast things can go wrong.


"Bobtailing" means you are driving a tractor without a trailer attached.

The Super Ego driver should have never swerved.
