Although there is no final report, it appears that this was operator error. They were going 80 in a section where the max speed was 30. There was another individual in the engine who was not supposed to be there and the thought is that that person may have distracted the driver. Both are hospitalized and have not been interviewed by the NTSB yet. My wife drives that route to work daily and her daily commute is now about 90 minutes, up from 45. On the day of the accident, she saw the very end of it, so if she had left for work about 10 seconds earlier, she would have been right in the middle of it. It looks like it will be several days before the highway is open.
