Video: FMX Listener Captures 18-Wheeler On Fire Between Snyder and Post Early Thursday Morning
Thursday morning, The RockShow on 94.5 FMX received a phone call about an 18-wheeler wreck off of Highway 84, roughly 21 miles away from Snyder, heading southeast from Post.
At the time of the phone call from listener Ronald Flores, which was around 6:13 a.m., the truck was already on fire. Flores added a series of photos and videos to Facebook that are available below.
Flores said he believes that the accident happened when the 18-wheeler on the road clipped a parked 18-wheeler. That is simply speculation at this point, as official details from authorities are not yet available.
He did send along this picture of the vehicle that was clipped in the accident, and it's pretty bad. Besides the back wheels being damaged, the back of the semi-truck appears to be smashed outward. Pieces of either the vehicle, what it's carrying or both are seen littering the ground.
We certainly hope that everyone involved is okay, but it's clear that the blazing truck is a complete loss. We'll update this story as more information is available.
