As if high fuel prices, diesel shortages in the southeast and a financial crisis the likes of which we’ve not seen since the 1930s weren’t enough, four northeast haulers found themselves in the literal line of fire last week on Western New York’s Southern Tier Expressway, or I-86, near Ellery. The Buffalo News website reported Thursday on the four, who themselves reported being shot at while eastbound and down, “>prompting authorities to close a section of the eastbound highway in the town of Ellery for about two hours overnight,” according to the News. Two of the trucks had reportedly been hit in their windshields, one in the roof fairing and the last with “no visible damage.”
