Fiery Truck Blast … What's your focus while driving?

This morning a truck driver narrowly escaped death as his truck catapulted into a bridge pier on the transfer from Highway 401 west-bound collectors to the DVP/404. I think this picture says it all in terms of the severity of the crash.

The highway system around Toronto is expansive but with a crash like this it cripples the morning drive into the city. With all of the things that can distract us in the car (mobile devices, radio, coffee, etc) this is a reminder to not multi-task in the car and to pay attention.

Hopefully this bridge withstands the collision and explosion and driving along the 401 can return to normal as soon as possible.
