    Somebody would have pictures, but about 10 years ago, one of our trucks with three trailers went into a giant hole on I-5.
    Reddaway's tagline was "#1 on I-5".
    We made calendars with the main picture caption for the whole year, "#1 under I-5"

    In case anyone was wondering, it WAS dark at the time of submergence, and this was ruled preventable

    Wow, I'd say! It is preventable, he could've called in sick. I avoided an accident this way more than once.
