My husband is a truck driver and he called me. I think this might be the same wreck you're talking about. It was a FedEx truck that crossed over the median and hit another truck headon? If this is the wreck that you're talking about....is there any news info on it or anything? My husband and his co-driver saw it.

I wonder if that's what we saw from Stockton Hill. We were coming back from Laughlin about that time and I wanted to stop at Hastings. There were huge billows of smoke coming from west of Stockton Hill. We thought it was a brush fire, but couldn't tell exactly where it was at. It will probably be in the paper today.

My uncle was killed in the accident. He was a resident of Fresno, CA. He was not the owner of the UPS truck but the truck the Federal UPS truck hit. The UPS truck's tire popped which made him lose control of the truck. The police officer that came to our house did not have many details. The vehicles caught on fire. They contacted us because they found my uncle's wallet. I have been trying to find more information about the crash but as it looks the details are very sparse.

If you find anything please, please post them here.

Oh yes, there were 4 people killed. One of them was my uncle, I'm assuming there were 2 drivers in the UPS truck, and I'm not sure who the 4th person was.

Kesha, Jes...You don't know me but my husband was also on the interstate at the time of the accident...he's a truck driver. I am so sorry for your loss and you all and your families as well as the others that were involved are in my prayers...may God be with you!

Kesha - Yes, it occurred on Saturday at 6:30PM in Kingman.

Does your uncle drive a Fed Ex tandem-trailer semi? That's the truck that lost control and went over the median. I actually was able to track down pictures. If you want, I can send them to you. Maybe you can identify your uncle's truck?

This was a horrible..horrible accident. My uncle is a cross country driver. He had been on the home for 15 days. He was actually on his way home. He was supposed to come home ON Friday. But he said he was tired and decided to sleep instead. After sleeping, he started for home but...never made it home.

He left behind a beautiful wife and 3 kids. I can't stand to watch them cry. His oldest son is also a truck driver and was on his way to NY. He flew in today.

Kesha - If I find anymore information as to what caused the UPS truck to lose control or any information at all...I will let you know immediately. Were you contacted by the police?

Crystal - Thank you.

I didn't see a UPS truck but I did see the Fed Ex (green) truck on fire. I am so sorry for all you people that had relatives die in this accident! It burned for hours after the crash. Late last night they finally got the wreckage picked up on the side of the road. How many vehicles were involved?
Prayers to the families!

It was a FedEx truck. I confused FedEx with UPS.

From what the officer told us, there were only two vehicles involved.

What a horrible accident!! We live near the accident scene and were getting ready to go golfing when we saw the huge amount of black smoke. Someone thought it could be our house on fire so we rushed towards our house. The closer we were to our home we realized that it was on I-40. From our viewpoint we could only see the 1st Fed Ex trailer completely engulfed in flames and couln't even see the westbound truck. What type of truck was the westbound truck? The second Fed Ex trailer didn't seem to catch on fire. It took hours to get the fire out and the debris was still in the road at 11pm. When I found out that the Fed Ex truck was travelling eastbound and crossed the median and hit the other truck I thought that there had to be something that either happened to the driver or one of the front tires blew out because the Fed Ex truck would have just come up over the hill and trucks are usually going slow up that eastbound hill. Jes and Kesha, I am so sorry for the loss of your family members, but be assured there are many people in Kingman saying prayers for you and your family.

For some weird reason this website doesn't quite know where I live. I live in Kingman, Arizona, not New York.

*** Jes** Yes this is the same accident then. I am soo soo sorry for your loss. I'm at work today and I am full of sadness. Email me pictures at kesha.sermon.qxzq@statefarm.co m. Please no pranks*** Here is the story I got from the trooper.Ernest and my uncle were in the Fed ex truck. My uncle went in the back to go to sleep. Ernest crossed the median and hit the semi on the other side. Fed ex truck was going into a curve..and the other semi was coming out of curve. No clue why Ernest crossed the median. State trooper told my mom it may have been medical related because he saw no marks where he tried to correct himself..as well as no break lights showing he tried to hit breaks to stop from hitting the other semi. The thought of the three guys burning to death just causes an unbeliveable ache in my heart. I will pray for your family.
