This story makes me wonder and worry about how much nuclear waste is rolling over the roads and rails.

That is correct. I used the word accident as a catch all phrase. My husband told me before he went into a coma, the truck malfunctioned. There was a employee that promised to give me information on what was going on with the city trucks. He never came through. He soon transferred to another job with the city. I do pray this driver pulls through, and praying for his family.

There are no such things as "accidents" involving vehicles. The cause is predictable with driver error or vehicle malfunction. Most accurate media reports use "wreck" or "crash" or "mishap." Accident is the most inaccurate term to use.

You do not know the entire story! Many cruel things were said when my husband had an accident in 2011 driving an 18 wheeler for the city of Tulsa. The news said the driver was fine. I do pray the driver makes it. Please do not state why the accident happened, unless you were in the truck with him.
