Any explanation about how someone puts a tractor and trailer on its side on a flat highway that is bone dry?

I saw the damage a truck carrying concrete forms in NY mountains, it slid on it's side into the trees, almost looked like a small tornado hit trees, he swerved to miss bicycles on highway

Ya, texting, watching a video on the phone/iPad/computer and several other reasons all related to shoddy truck drivers. Make ya feel safer yet?


Not as bad as I could be, not as good as I should be.

When that much weight crosses that white line, it really bites and the fight is on to get it back. Inexperienced drivers are so panicked that they aren't prepared when it finally rolls back up on the road and they over compensate. The result is what you see in the picture.

Doesn't matter as I'm sure he still has his job as finding truck drivers this day and age is next to impossible, much less finding a decent one. A number of years ago I put one on it's side when the side of the road collapsed. Boss was very upset with me but I didn't lose my job. Found out later he came out very well on the deal with the insurance company.

True drivers are difficult to find but that same insurance company influences greatly the quality of driver allowed behind the wheel.
