It's 2007. The year's first photos for me were not all that inspiring. More car accident photos. We have such a high volume of traffic through Gallup on I-40 that crashes of some sort are nearly a daily occurrence here.
A witness told me that the truck had crossed the median, narrowly missing his vehicle, gone off the road and become airborne off a large dirt mound. Somehow the truck stayed upright and eventually came to a stop in an open field.
The police scanner indicated that the driver had suffered from a heart attack, but thanks to the HIPPA laws I can't call the hospital and check on the condition of a patient.
