Imagine this: You’re driving along a highway when suddenly a 44,000-pound coil of steel comes rolling toward you.
People in two cars near Orleans, IN, faced that terrifying sight, which ultimately proved fatal.
A semi-trailer hauling a load of steel coil was rounding a curve on a state highway when a 44,000-pound coil fell off the truck.
The coil struck a pickup truck, killing two people. Then it continued to roll and struck a car, killing another person. A child in the pickup was also hospitalized and is now listed in fair condition.
State police issued a ticket to the driver of the semi for having the coil improperly secured.
