Cheri Barefield   said “I saw the initial accident. It was minor…a car side swiped the semi in heavy rain. The problem is they BOTH stopped in the middle of the interstate! 2 lanes! And traffic was coming up on them fast! Very dangerous situation! I don’t know why they didn’t get off to the side of the road…it was minor damage. I bet someone came up on it and rammed right into them. So sad!”
