Sunday 5/30/2010, Rio Puerco, NM

This truck burned up in the middle of the night here last night about 25 miles west of Albuquerque. Based on the time and location of the accident, right at the end of a construction zone where the westbound traffic crosses back across the median to the westbound lanes, it seems likely the driver was drowsy or asleep and going too fast to make the sudden lane shift to the right. I didn't hear if the driver survived or not.
