To Texas

Davidson, NC
15 hours 1 min
Pasadena, TX

1,045.6 mi
From: Davidson, NC To: Pasadena, TX
We got a load. We will be leaving the Charlotte area and heading to Texas.
The trip was longer than we expected. We sat for 2 hours near Spartanburg, SC. There was an accident. Here is what the news said about that accident.
I-85 Re-Opens After Dump Truck AccidenAll lanes of Interstate 85 have reopened after a collision between an 18-wheeler and dump truck shut down the interstate late Monday afternoon.The wreck happened at 2:15 p.m. at the 35 mile marker in Anderson County.Trooper Billy Elder of the South Carolina Highway Patrol said that the driver of the 18-wheeler, 59-year-old Joe Earle, of Belton, was entering the interstate from an off-ramp when he failed yo yield the right of way and was struck by a dump truck. The dump truck overturned and spilled asphalt and gravel across the north and southbound lanes.The interstate was shut down for a short period of time and traffic backed up for several miles as crews cleaned up the debris from the wreckage.According to Elder, the driver of the dump truck, 39-year-old Samuel Cantrell, of Travelers Rest, was wearing a seatbelt and transported to a nearby hospital for minor injuries. Earle was wearing a seatbelt and not injured. He was cited with failure to yield the right of way. 
After getting past there. We hit Atlanta during rush hour. So it took us another 1 1/2 hour to get through that area. Then I drove us to Montgomery, AL and then Pops took over. When I woke up, we were at the welcome center in Texas. We made our delivery and now are waiting again for another load.
