On Monday heading west on I-69 most vehicles were driving way under speed limit. Right lane clean, left lane covered in powder. Visibility was variable, until some idiot decides to go flying past in the left lane and each time that happened total white-out conditions occurred greatly increasing hazard of slamming into something unseen as we all know. Except one of these in-a-hurry-hazard-makers was a CN rail truck. A few minutes later a massive pile-up ensued east of M-24. He must have cleared the zone just before it happened as I was the 3rd vehicle through when we were allowed to proceed past the carnage and his wasn't among them. My question is, would CN want to hear about this or not? I know for a fact other businesses do and that's why their trucks use caution lest they get reported. I didn't think to catch the door number until he was too far up. Driving these roads at those times is hard enough. Since this is rail-related I'm asking here.
