Pouloses: they keep people from killing themselves when huge trucks carrying ether crash on freeways.

The tire assembly first hit the 18-wheeler hauling ether in the right lane eastbound, bounced off that truck and hit the front of the van in the left lane head-on, Poulos said.

Poulos interrupted his interview twice at 7 p.m. to pull over errant vehicles trying to cross the median.

”Do not do that again,” Poulos hollered to one driver.

Returning to the interview, Poulos said. “That’s how people get killed. That’s what we’re dealing with right now.”
