We passed the accident immediately after it happened. Looked like all the windows were broken out and the air bags were deployed. The problem arose when people began to slow and stop to gawk. Because the roads had just become very slick another truck trying to stop also spun off the road. A school bus had also stopped in the immediate vicinity, but I don't believe it was involved at all.

I am surprised that we all the snow we have had that the tree pictured didn't come down--with all those green leaves and all.
