This is just a horriffic accident that has been all over the local news and newspapers (3 pages in one newspaper). NY Times WFSB News To sum it up a dump trucks brakes failed barreling down a mountain, got out of control, hit around 20 cars and a bus, killed 4 people, critically injured 4 other people, and involved 30 other people. The truck had a history of problems too. The sad thing is incidents happen so frequently on this main road, not to long ago some idiot was speeding down this mountain in his new BMW, lost control, hit a tree, and died. I had the experience of being stuck in the traffic jam 15min after the accident. Everything was on fire. If you look at the pictures you can see how scary that must have been.
