Last year in Mexico....43 people died including 7 children all caused by a loose flying trailer and we warned everybody and nobody did anything.  So this year it happened again...and now 22 more lives are gone all caused by OUT OF CONTROL FLYING LOOSE TRAILERS THAT HAVE NO INSPECTIONS AND NO STANDARDS!!!  HOW MANY MORE HAVE TO DIE BEFORE THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES AND MEXICO DECIDE TO SAVE LIVES JUST ONE!!!! BY STANDARDS!!!!!

INSTEAD of embracing our life saving mission....the Government of the United States and Mexico have decided to prevent us from saving lives.  Donald Karol of the NTSB and Ray LaHood of NHTSA are fully responsible for the loss of lives due to loose trailers.
This is the most recent accident!!!

An explosion caused by a fuel tanker accident on a main road on the outskirts of Mexico City has killed at least 22 people and injured dozens more.

The rear trailer of the articulated truck came loose after the vehicle hit the central division of the main commuting route connecting the capital to the vast urban sprawl to the north, in the State of Mexico, according to early reports.

That was where the the accident took place, in an area called Ecatepec. The rear trailer reportedly crossed on to the other side of the road before crashing and exploding.

Salvador Neme, the head of the citizen safety department of the State of Mexico, said most of the deaths had occurred in the houses lining the road, some just a few feet away from the six lanes of heavy traffic. He said several children were among the victims.

Neme said more than 500 police, soldiers and rescue workers had been sent to the scene to control the fires and sift through the burnt-out homes and vehicles in search of victims. He gave an initial estimate of 27 houses and 16 vehicles affected by the accident.

The driver of the lorry was said to be one of 36 people taken to hospital, and to have been placed under arrest. Local media reported that the truck belonged to a company called Termo Gas.

The truck was reportedly travelling into the capital when the accident happened, shortly after 5am, just as the morning rush was beginning.

The road was immediately closed, causing chaos, but the authorities said they expected it to be open again before midday.

The tragedy has highlighted longstanding concerns about the safety of lorries travelling on Mexican roads. Just over a year ago, 43 people died when the rear trailer of an articulated lorry crashed into a bus full of farm workers on road in the Gulf Coast state of Veracruz.

VERACRUZ, Mexico (AP) — A trailer broke loose from a cargo truck and slammed into a passenger bus on Friday, killing at least 43 people in the Gulf coast state of Veracruz, state government spokeswoman Gina Dominguez said.

Veracruz Gov. Javier Duarte said 27 people were injured in the crash, including seven children.

The victims were workers traveling from Coatzacoalcos in Veracruz to the northern border state of Coahuila, Dominguez said. The accident occurred on a winding stretch of highway near the town of Alamo in the northern part of the state.

The driver of the trailer truck hauling sorghum fled the scene and was being sought by authorities, she said.

Duarte and his wife visited the accident site to oversee the rescue and recovery efforts, promising state support for victims and their families.

Thousands of people from Veracruz, Mexico's third most populous state, work in factories and farms along Mexico's border with the United States.
