Horrible 18-wheeler accident on I-10...

An 18-wheeler crashed on I-10 in Houston today...right at I-45 and I-10.  The crash must have happened around lunch time.

The following are the pictures I took after I drove up on the HOV overpass lane to look down on the scene...



More...

And a look from the other direction


Part of the hood...and the turbo charger


He's alive!


The upper part of the cab and the driver being loaded into the ambulance


Here you can see the bottom of the tractor underneath the trailer...see the exhaust stack?


Here's another look...
you can see part of the cab under the trailer (blue arrow),
the top of the cab (red arrow),
and the hood (purple arrow).

Damn!
