    This morning there was a pretty serious accident on the 103 between exits 4 and 5 involving a dump truck and a tractor trailer :eek7: Anyone hear anymore on this? I have heard there was 1 or more fatalities.

    Q104 just announced that they're expecting the clean up/investigation to take another three hours.

    Dump truck vs. tractor trailer was on the 101 I believe.. No fatalities, last I heard...

    Fatal three car crash was on the 103.

    Driving home this morning, when I heard of the dump truck and tractor trailer, I was wondering who'd win that one.. I mean, a car vs. tractor trailer is a given, the TT wins... but a dump truck vs. a TT, I can't see a clear winner here..

    That accident on the 103... I'm willing to bet its related to the construction going on between Halifax and Tantallon.. What a mess... They've cut the speed limit from 100 to 80, so you've got two groups travelling at different speeds.. The ones who'll do 80 and the ones who'll continue to drive 110 and try to pass those who're doing 80.. but alot of those passing lanes are non-existent now..

    i bet the dump truck was trying to drift around the TT

    looks like he wasn't out of control enough to be in control

    I wonder if the "sports car" accidents have anything to do with the new fast and the furious movie...

    There seems to be more claims reported this spring than there were all winter

    I've been saying it's going to be a brutal period for accidents after that stupid movie comes out again.

    Shauna, you can probly look back at the stats, I bet there was a bad patch of them after the first one came out too.

    I think something happened on the Bay rd too... I was on Northwest Arm Dr at lunch time, and 2 police cars just blocked the ramp going up from NW Arm Dr to the Bay Rd.

    You wait...we might be switching to an automatic(fack)...and that means Amanda will be on the roads once again. That's more than enough of a reason to be scared, Dan!

    I'm glad I don't have to drive on that hell highway anymore, i drove on it for the first time since Christmas time just last weekend, and it was Sunday and a helluva mess, I would hate to imagine morning rush hour in the fog :eek7: .

    still haven't recieved the pics, but msn is being kinda screwy today. I saw the stories on the news tonight though, pretty rough. One woman was killed this morning on the 103 highway crash RIP. Everyone got out with minor injuries in the dump truck/tractor trailer wreck although one of the drivers was trapped for 2 hours. Once Hotmail stops being a bitch i'll post up the truck carnage.

    The one on the bridge was Lauren's Del Sol, she's just fine apparently although the car is worse for wear. The transfer truck was changing lanes and didn't see her...clipping her car behind the rear drivers wheel and spinning her around.

    You should probably resize those images, they are a tad on the large size.

    hmm, I can't upload them to RC, comes up invalid file :confused: photobucket automatically resizes images I guess. Oh well they're small but show the story.

    P.S drive safe out there, especially in construction zones and school zones. :bigup:

    :( I heard that. Its really sad how you wake up every morning expecting to come home at 5:00, and unfortunately it doesn't always happen. RIP to her, and condolences to her family she left behind. I shudder at the thought of telling my son mommy won't be coming home :( .

    I'm a little emo today.
