well didnt see it happen, drove past around 45 mins after it happened and again 2 hrs later on my way back home...

i am now scared to drive near trucks and fire trucks.... was so scary, really didnt look like they could have survived.

this is the main photo from the crash though, was so freaky...

I reckon I would've too. A few months back I saw a body after an accident near work and was rather shaken up from it all.

OMG thats scary and its a hard 1 to put the blame on
if the firetruck had its lights in the semi was to blame but if they didn't then its the firetrucks fault

i not casting judgement... i am thinking that fire truck is at blame, i know the bit of road, and well the fire truck should have travelled further along before turning in my opinion because they werent in a visible enough position to be turning on the highway!!

just seeing the damage and stuff i freaked out, i do get scared driving near trucks, buses etc, because of the fact that they take a lot longer to break...

If the fire truck had it's sirens on the unfortunately they wont point the finger at them, but I don't know the details, so who knows.

but good god!

they had siren etc going, but being on a road with 110 speed limit they didnt leave enough room for the cars coming over the crest to stop.

I am a truck drivers daughter and a truck drivers wife too thats why i said I thought it would be a hard 1 to put the blame on. I fully understnad the workings of trucks and I know how scary it is and how much room they need to break (which is why u never ever cut in front of a truck too by the way)
I am hoping that noone is held at blame but unfortunately in this world we are blamed for something at some point
