Seattle PI

PIEDRAS NEGRAS, Mexico — A dynamite-laden truck exploded after colliding with another vehicle on a busy highway in northern Mexico’s coal country, killing at least 34 people, including three reporters at the scene, state and federal officials said.

Authorities said the two vehicles crashed into each other Sunday evening, drawing a crowd of curious onlookers as well as a small army of police, soldiers, emergency officials and journalists.

Shortly after the crowd arrived, the wreckage caught fire, and the dynamite exploded, sending a ball of fire into the sky that consumed nearby cars and left a 10-by-40 foot crater in the concrete, said Maximo Alberto Neri Lopez, a federal police official.

He said more than 150 people were injured.

The force of the explosion blew out the windows of a passenger bus a quarter-mile away.

The dead included three newspaper reporters from the nearby city of Monclova, said Luis Horacio de Hoyos of the Coahuila state Attorney General’s Office.

It was unclear if the explosive truck’s driver was among the dead. Early reports said he might have fled.

Coahuila state has a large mining industry, most of it in coal.

The explosion raised further questions about the safety of Mexican trucks.

This weekend, Mexico began sending its first tractor-trailers across U.S. territory under a long-delayed, NAFTA-mandated program. Before, Mexican trucks were limited to 25-mile zone along the border.

Many in the U.S. fought the change, arguing that Mexican trucks are unsafe.

    It isnt just their trucks that are unsafe.
    THEY are unsafe. or outright dangerous.
    Life is cheap in ‘the third world’.
    Their entire worldview is framed around life-worth-a-peso
    THAT is why they dont fit, and why we dont get along
    It doesnt have anything to do with skin color
    That has always been a diversionary tactic
    We are not swarming humanity
    They have never been anything but a hive
    Little wonder then that politically they act as they do.
    The social atmosphere created by our fathers is healthy for those who know themselves as Responsible Individuals and Freemen,
    They choke in the air we breathe
    because they know no identity other than that of the pack.
    This exploding truck thing is just the tip of the iceberg
    There is going to be a(nother) bloodbath on our highways now because of “Basic Pilot ™ ” It will be ignored at first, and supressed.
    After the truth becomes undeniable they will send out their damage control squad-Commander Geraldo will get on tv and make impassioned speeches about how we are looking at it in the wrong context and its ‘really about vehicle safety” etc.
    I hope its the American Trucker that kicks off the coming civil war.

    Well, I talked to my half-Latina daughter about this today and she said I sounded very racist & was really upset, stating that everytime I talked like this, she felt like I am targeting her…..and so far, she has had more problems with white drivers than anybody else. She also said, there were already Mexican truck drivers and other foreign drivers.

    Well it’s true that there are bad white drivers and other drivers from other countries, but I think this is a little different and I didn’t get a chance to tell her that this was also to help the NAU along a little further.

    So in between no replies whatsoever from other family members and an angry response from my daughter, I guess I’m on a roll. I didn’t accomplish much with all the info I sent. Well, at least I tried.

    This is what our roads will be like in a year or so this will be so common it will bairly make the news.When you get people driving for many hours with out sleep to make deadlines that are as dangerous as stiking a gun to your head and pulling the trigger just to see if the gun works?THANKS G.W.BUSCH
