    Hope Russell Allen recovers well soon and is able to continue performing. Not a fan of Adrenaline Mob but Symphony X is one of the best bands to exist. RIP DZ

    Good point. For all we know the truck driver could have blown a tire too (or a tire even fall off) making him swerve. Best not to say anything too stupid until the investigation is completed. In my younger days of driving i blew a tire and had to react very fast in order to not go into the ditch. I am fortunate it was a country road that wasn't busy because I could have hit someone. My condolences to everyone involved who was hurt and whether it is the truckere fault or not his life will likely be ruined as a result of this. Nobody should wish somethig like this on anyone no matter what angle you look at. This situation is just tragic

    This was about 10 years ago, but I picked my wife up from Atlanta airport and on the way back on I-71 we were behind a transfer truck that had went into a turn a little to fast. It just started slowly going to one side and then finally tipped over, and any transfer truck driver will tell you, once it starts, there is no stopping it because of the weight it hauls. It was literally like watching a movie with a slow motion wreck. We got out and seen the driver was already out because the windshield popped out. We asked if he could move and he said his back hurt to bad, then the truck caught on fire, and we all three instantly turned into Usain Bolt. I asked if he was hauling anything explosive and he said no. I then called 911, and he asked me to call his boss and let him know what happened, and I did.  Once the police arrived the truck was then burning furiously and my wife was taking care of the driver. (She is an M.A.)  All of the sudden the front tire exploded...It was so freaking loud. Not even 30 seconds after that the gas tank sprung a leak and was squirting diesel out. One cop yelled to the other and said. "Hey, there is a gas leak!' The other cop responded "It's okay. Diesel is not flammable." I got my wife and said, time to go. and we got out of there.

    Well, technically diesel isn't flammable, it's combustible. It has a higher flash point than gasoline because it's less refined.

    Somehow I have a feeling they would have already said if it was a blown tire that caused the accident judging by the way it was worded. My guess is he fell asleep at the wheel and but I suppose we'll find out.
