What do you think this is? Interesting
Yep it's a Big Rig that was pulling 1/2 ton blocks of straw... probably had at least 27 ton on board.. Well, some wonderful person was starting fires every 10 miles from Eugene to Albany. So basically the Freeway was on fire. So this hay truck must of had some debree touch it and up it went. So the traffic was insane. They shut down the freeway in both directions. The Albany-Jefferson traffic was creeping along while the hillside was on fire. Guess what we had tractors stuck out in this stuff. We kept trying to get to fields to we kept going one way and turning around and going another. Tons of roads were closed. It was stupid...
The one funny thing about this story is the way that dang stack pipe just sticks up in the air all by itself. Hard to believe that was a Cab of a big rig.
