Channel 10 News, Amarillo, TX - Texas state troopers say only minor injuries were reported from a wreck that kept one direction of Interstate 40 closed for at least a couple hours. Troopers confirm a gust of wind blew over three semi-trucks in the eastbound lanes near exit 80, at around 9:20 Friday night. At around the time of the crash, troopers believed it would take at least until midnight to clear the scene of the crash and re-open the highway.
A while back I mentioned that Amarillo is Quarter Horse country. Businesses all over town have painted fiberglass Quarter Horses. This one is the Coca-Cola horse. My grandson took the photo for me.
I was so disappointed that California Chrome did not win the Triple Crown. I am not a big horse racing person but I loved his story and loved to see horses run. I dislike jockeys hitting them with those sticks though (I am sure they have a better name) and I sure am too poor to ever even think about betting on a horse. I am also disappointed in one of the owner's rant after the loss. Wish he had stayed on the high road.
