Rogue Truck Reinvents the Phrase ‘Mass Pileup’
Okay, seriously, now — what is going with trucks lately?
First, there’s the truck that rolled into the water. Then, there’s a truck that rolled over a dude’s head. Now, there’s a truck in Gurnee, Ill. that rolled into a whole slew of cars for reasons that don’t seem to make a whole lot of sense.
Traffic is moving merrily along at what appears to be a decent speed when the semi-tractor driver plows right into a car that’s not moving ahead of him. The driver’s decision not to stop for a car that is stopped sets off a chain reaction in which multiple cars get smacked around.
Eight people wound up in the hospital — one in critical condition — and six other cars were involved in the crash.
It’s unclear what kind of charges, if any, the truck driver will face.
