    SAN DIMAS - Three Los Angeles women died following a crash on the South 57 Freeway on Monday after the truck they were in caught fire, California Highway Patrol officials said.

    The women, whose ages ranged from 47 to 62, were in a Nissan pickup truck traveling slowly because of an apparent flat tire when a Wal-Mart tractor-trailer rear-ended them, bending the frame of the pickup and causing the gas tank to explode, said CHP Officer Rodrigo Jimenez.

    From the same article linked above in post 1

    The 25-year-old driver of the tractor-trailer was also unharmed.
    Does Walmart hires drivers this young? ..I wonder if it was a broker or contract carrier pulling a Walmart trailer. The news reporter would not
    see anything other than the big Walmart trailer.

    Don't know, X. I found updates and photos. Perhaps you can decipher.

    [UPDATE] Although the names of the three women who died in a fiery accident on the 57 southbound freeway early Monday morning have not yet been released, details have emerged on what may have caused the accident.

    According to CHP Officer Rodrigo Jimenez, the driver of the Nissan pickup truck slowed to 5 mph in the slow lane, apparently of a damaged right tire. However, the vehicle carrying the driver and three women continued in the right slow lane.
