Old man winter has struck again.  Every year, the ornery man comes down from the sky an blankets America in snow and ice.  In some areas, the roads were so bad that bus systems and other public transportation was shut down.  

On Saturday, the ‘ol man struck the East coast, causing over 50 accidents on the highway in the Virginia/Washington D.C. area.  One of these accidents was a big tanker truck that overturned and exploded, and the whole thing was caught on video in dramatic fashion.  The video shows the truck speeding by, flipping and immediately exploding.  The explosion then caused a 15 car pile up.

The story gets worse, though, as the driver of the truck died.  Thoughts and prayers go out to his family and to the others who were injured during the other accidents on the east coast and across the nation.
