Rollover On I90

so i was comin home from work bout 1130 this evening and bout 2 miles b4 the randall toll, traffic came to an abrubt hault! i assumed it was some new road construction but then over 8 troopers and i dont know how many firetrucks and ambulances fly by, i quickly reallize that there has been an accident! so bout an hour of inchin goes by and jus b4 the bend b4 the toll booths, i see what looks like a huge pile of garbage all they way on the right hand side shoulder and debree scattered everywhere...i.e, 200ft length of guard rail, wheel, and what looks like bodypanels. lil further past that, there lies what used to be a, i dont know what u call it, when a semi is pullin 2 trailors...well they were all smashed up and on their side. i couldnt tell if their was a car or any other vehical involved cuz it was such a mess, but it look like the worst accident that ive ever seen!!! that is the only details that i have in it but was wondering if maybe any1 saw it on the news or happened to pass by it also??? LETS PRAY THAT EVERY1 INVOLVED MADE IT OUT ALIVE!!!! IT REALLY MADE MY STOMACHE DROP LOOKIN AT HOW BAD IT WAS!!!

I am what I am, and I do what I do!!

Its usually called "Pennsylvania Doubles" or doubles if you go by the endorsements on a CDL.

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

I saw that too! I was driving home from seeing the last Face to Face show in Chicago at the Metro and traffic ground to a damn halt before 31.

We got off on 31 North, but from the exit ramp I could see debris and wreckage strewn all over the road....
