A Snapping Turtle Affair

Snapper turtle stopped by to shop for trucks! (tongue twister)

In our daily lives as fast paced human beings, it may be easy to slow down and reflect on the cycle of life and those who impact it. The most common task of purchasing everyday goods is something few may think to delve into. Far less the notion that there is a veteran who has made your cold bowl of cereal possible or those snug jogging pants, oil, gas, food and the list is endless. The truth is the commerce that freight transports it what keeps this country going. It is what makes it possible to live as we have adapted to thriving in this era and many more to come.

As we mindlessly, to no fault of our own, consume things rapidly; headlines, burgers, policies. Let us take a second to reflect and give thanks to those who have sacrificed so much so that we could take home a little bit of joy, just

Another season is just about in the books as summer comes to a close and autumn starts down the bend. For many people, fall is just a detour on the way to the winter freeze. But don’t be fooled – autumn presents unique highway and traffic conditions that every trucker should be aware of heading into late September and October. With the right preparation, truckers can enjoy a brisk fall and a welcome break from the sweltering heat and stifling humidity of summer.

Truck Crashes Spilling Pennies in Delaware

Penniless Pennies Plaster the Pavement

Police say the big rig, carrying blank pennies and headed to the U.S. Mint in Philadelphia, slammed into a Jersey barrier, overturned and caught fire.
Images from Chopper 6 HD and the Action Cam showed tens of thousands of blank pennies covering the roadway.

The driver suffered minor injuries and received treatment at the scene.

There was no immediate word what led to the crash or if the driver would face any charges.

Delaware State Police shut down all lanes of northbound I-95, forcing traffic off the roadway at the Rt. 141/Basin Rd. exit.

Traffic was detoured onto U.S. Rt. 13 North to I-295 North.

DelDOT said one lane of I-95 North was back open by 10 a.m., but the right two lanes remained closed.

Traffic backups were expected to continue through the rest of the morning.
