Freeway closed due to Ammonium Nitrate Spill

When I read this article, the first thing that came to my mind is if this was the 95% stuff that I can use to make my own Tannerite.  Freeway's been closed for 6 hours now and could possibly be another 8 hours.

How does the tanker tip over but the tractor is still upright?

    I got caught in the traffic from that at 2pm local time. I-15 and I-215 were both totally closed down and people were rerouted on side streets for miles. Even many hours after the spill, it made a 10 minute drive into a 45 minute drive.

    Watching the video, this happened at 9:15 this morning. According to google maps, the freeways are mostly open now, except for northbound I-15 is still being rerouted and is backed up for a ways.



    The story said the accident was caused by two other vehicles. One of them hit the trailer, which was a second trailer attached to the trailer that was hitched to the truck. That one flipped, and the other trailer stayed upright.

    I wondered what was going on when I got done with hockey. Traffic was a mess every where I went. For a moment I wondered if the crap had finally hit the fan.

    Dang, that is like 4 blocks from my office building.  Glad I am out of the country this week!

    Wait...What am I saying.  I would gladly sit in traffic for 9 hours to be back at home tonight instead of Sunday night.
