    Default White MTV burning side of road

    video posted on Facebook. with following information...

    Glenn Highway, on the hayflats going TO Anchorage. Driver is ok and unharmed. 10:00pm

    Have not been able to find same video on Youtube. Happened only day(s) ago? (20th?) Does not appear to be Duckworthe's. Does not appear to be TwoIfbyOverland. Both have something on cab roof and truck on fire did not. Both also have different grills. Burning one had I think and expedition box on back though it might have been troop canvas... buttt.. front looks too square for that.

    anyway..... for those on facebook...... see https://www.facebook.com/groups/1647...9268306026489/

    either way sad to see her burning away. Some guess it a rear brake fire.

    Could that be an M1090 dump? I think I see a dump body through the smoke, but maybe I am mistaken.

    Good call BKubu and porkysplace... new updated info reportst that is exactly what it was. Here is what Joe Goodnuff saw as he drove by it today

    another reported that there was heavy black tire marks from locked up brakes too.
