I-465 Tanker Explosion Slideshow

Here’s a slideshow of photos from yesterday’s semi-tanker explosion on I-465 on the northeast side.

These are some amazing images. It’s a miracle there weren’t more domino wrecks and casualties with such a blast and traffic heavy area.

I’m curious as to how much this is going to impact traffic. I think it’s going to be much more than people expect, although I heard tonight that westbound traffic on I-465 has been restored?

I’d love to hear what other people’s experiences have been. Whether you were there or close when it happened, or how your commute has been impacted since the explosion, let us know in the comments.

    This is probably the worst point location on the Interstate for this to take place. It is amazing how this one incident changes our routine and therefore our daily life. Imagine, if you can, those countries that face bombs and destruction on a daily basis. I wonder how they find any quality life at all.
