Terrible... reporting. I-95 is a North/South Interstate, not East/West as reported in the story.

Remember... if it is an even # interstate it is an East/West (I-20, I26)... if it is an odd #, it runs North/South (I-95, I-77)

Hope the trucker is ok.

The writing under the picture says I-26 but the article does say I- 95 mile marker 167.

Pretty bad when I have to come to the blog to find the actual location. I was going to say MP 167 on I-95 is in Florence...

I drive from Sumter every day, and I think the same thing every time I am behind a truck carrying steel pipes/beam - or, those log trucks with the HUMONGUOUS logs that appear to be bouncing up and down, even though they are tied down....

The only thing that writing in the picture means is the location of the camera. Its at the intersection of those two interstates.

Same here, especially after watching Final Destination 2. Glad to read the guy wasn't really impaled. How lucky was he?

Worry about them bouncing out but also worry about wheels, axles, etc..

Log trucks that I have worked on are usually D A N G E R O U S.

Poor Poor Maintenance on them (truck and trailer)

You need to either stay off the drugs or stop standing in front of the fun house mirrors that make things look Larger they really are.

Good luck with the rehab.
