I am a volunter Firefighter here in Hoosick an we had a ver interesting call here last monday that i thought you all might be interested in. I was sittin eatin lunch on monday an the pager goes off for a tractor trailer roll over so i jump in the powerstroke flip the blue light an was pullin out of the drive way, pager goes off again tractor trailer roll over will explosion. Ive never seen anything like this before the guy put the truck on its side an slide it down the road an it went over a 100 ft bank an cought fire we are thinking he was thrown out the windshield, the horse was jack knived around under the trailer on its side. We sprayed water on it for over 24 hours with un maned deck guns. Over 30 fire departments brought tankers to keep water pumping at all times. I have a ton of pictures ill try an post some later i havent had much luck before with posting pics.

You oughta be glad it burnt before you got there. We get propane and gasoline tankers overturned down here and it becomes a HAZMAT mess. "i'm a hazardous materials technician and cargo tanks specialist" that tractor and trailer was moving pretty good. those propane trucks have pretty solid tanks compared to a gasoline tanker.
