Maybe up to 80,000 pounds in trailer. From pictures it appears trailer was demolished. Good news maybe not full 100gal fuel tanks & no fire. Driver was killed.
Have heard of accidents like this with steel hauler, log truck. Crossing at gravel road with no lights, gates. Don't know about sight line from truck to see 90mph passenger or maybe 40-60 mph freights.
