    Just drove by there a few minutes ago and it looked like a war zone. Semi trucks axle was torn off the trailor and the truck and trailer were a couple hundred feet down the road.

      Is that what they said? I’m about 70 yards back from the accident. We weren’t to sure what was happening..

    • Heather Davis

      that’s what they said but we just drove past it and the big rig is fine there is another car that was obviously not ok.

    I drove past, I feel sorry for the families. How long will it take to clear up? I have to get past. 2 people are out in the desert with no car, no water, no shelter, no blankets, and with 2 dogs

    They are taking turns. I work down at pilot Wendy’s and I just got home. They’re taking turns letting sides through. There are tires and cones all over the road. Tons of police. I was stopped for about 45 minutes but they were letting sides go back and forth taking turns.

    Drove by the aftermath on my way home. Looks like the Cherokee possibly rear ended the semi at a very high rate of speed. If it was a fatality it was the person in tge Cherokee. It was burnt up but did look like it was white.

    I didn’t see any signs of fire, but the left side of the white SUV looked like it got hit the hardest, it was pointed northbound. It also appears that the semi’s trailer wheel carriage (frame, two axles with four wheels and tires each) seperated from the trailer. All this is based on quick glances…

    The jeep looked like a squished aluminum can it was horrible i hope everyone is ok but it didnt look like they could be it was bad πŸ™

    We were there while the jeep was on fire, they turned us around after 1:45 minutes they let us through. A war zone is the best description! I can’t stop thinking about! I have no idea how they are going to clean that mess up! Thank you first responders and everyone else that was there last night! So sad!
