Weird. Take a major interstate, turn it 90 degrees, whilst also changing elevation, into a tunnel, and it turns out to not be a good idea. Who would have thunk.........

If a truck can flip over into the oncoming lane, that curve has a design flaw. The concrete barrier must be taller to prevent serious injury or death.

Soak it up with Oreos. It'll be clear in 15 minutes.

The tanker driver was doing what many drivers do when going through the Lowry tunnel which is to say going too fast for the curve. Even though the appropriate spend through the tunnel is around 35 to 45 mph, many vehicles if not most are moving between 55 and 65 mph.

On the first day of my high school physics class, my teacher spent a good 15 minutes showing us picture after picture of big rigs turned over at this location on 94. It was his introduction to the basic laws of physics. Obviously it stuck with me, since I slow down everytime I round this corner.
