- Camp Deplorable in the Blue Swamp
Hard to tell exactly what happened from the pictures I've seen of the accident scene, but the truck that hit them was a Dodge Ram with a relatively large 5th wheel style flatbed trailer behind it. The road there looked pretty flat - so I find it hard to see how this could have been a case of him say coming down a steep slope and losing the brakes or something like that. Pure speculation on my part: but a lot of guys who drive those sorts of rigs - big diesel pickup with a long flatbed behind them - are "hotshot" truckers - and are always looking to make time. So the guy might have been just going too damn fast and talking on the cell or something.
