A tractor trailer carrying a load of chocolate through Tennessee suddenly caught fire and burned to the ground. Sadly, there were no chocolate survivors.
A six-mile backup has been reported along Interstate 24 eastbound in Robertson County after a tractor trailer caught fire.
The driver told fire crews he was heading east on I-24 near Pleasant View when he started hearing popping noises coming from his truck. He pulled over and saw his truck was on fire. The driver was not injured.
One eastbound lane reopened around 4 a.m.; however, the backups continue.
Police were overloaded later that evening with calls from menstruating women and Brian Stetler.
While our trip to Ohio was not entirely enjoyable, at least we didn’t get stuck behind the idiot who guided his tractor trailer onto a bike path.
A confused truck driver in Ohio drove onto a bicycle path and ended up getting his semi wedged underneath a pair of overhead bridges.
The Columbus Division of Police said the bike path north of Spring Street, parallel to Ohio State Route 315, was closed after a truck driver from out of town got confused trying to find a highway on-ramp Thursday.
Whew, we missed him by a day. The problem with Google Maps is people – myself included – rely more on the voice directions than looking at the signs before turning. Plus, if there is a lag in play, you receive the directions a block or two too late. Not that that’s ever happened to me…
Oh, and I’m not sure if there are any Ohio residents reading the blog, but good Vishnu, the continuous construction on your highways – looking at you, Interstate 80 – is infuriating.
