Dr.Fey: the woman stated she was attempting to park so she can rest for the night and somehow ended up driving over the embankment

So unrelated to fire.  Box truck must be cursed, like Howard Carter's discovery.

It's possible the fire caused damage (or was caused by) something relating to braking, meaning she wasn't able to stop fully, but you're probably right and it's unrelated.

This is common with a lot of rental agencies. The franchisee pays for repairs, so if a defective truck is turned in, the franchisee just slaps a band-aid on it and drives it to the next one. Let some other sucker pay for it; as a result, substantially none of them ever get repaired when they break down.

Sadly not full of white supremecist ass holes either during the fire or the wreck.

Article isn't clear if the fire happened with the same driver or a different driver. If the same, this lady needs to stop driving. If a different driver, and the rental place sent the truck back out the next day, that's really irresponsible but unfortunately not shocking.
