This accident occurred in Grand Forks,BC, Canada, when the driver of this tractor trailer failed to negotiate a sharp corner in the rain. There had been numerous reports of his reckless driving while on the highway, and the police were currently searching for him. He never yielded to the reduce speed sign before heading into an almost 90 degree corner. It had been raining all day and as the truck came around the corner, he lost control, jack-knifed and slammed into the steel supports of the bridge,detaching the trailer and pushing the cab onto the top portion of the bridge, and flipping his trailer, which had been carrying manure onto the shoulder, narrowly missing the river. The resulting explosion from the fuel tank exploding was felt throughout downtown Grand Forks, and the mushroom cloud could be seen from the other side of the valley. The driver was killed on impact.
