    super potato trucker in northern michigan, passing on an s-curve..no injuries

    no injuries reported. Probably some damage to the potatoes and to the drivers safety record / driving record. I'm from Michigan, probably some snow on the roads and cold too.... what's the rush? gotta pass a car? I just don't wanna be the one calling my FM to tell this story.

    So this gives u the right to call him a super trucker? How do u not know the car was going really slow? Don't be so rude to call someone a super trucker.

    Okay, maybe he did not have good brakes.... and he got a service failure for not making the delivery.

    The car going slow and I HAD TO PASS would not work at the company I work for...just sayin.

    not sure. the potato place was reportedly close to where the incident occurred, maybe a farm company truck. heres a link to the local story. The good news is that no ones hurt. Theres a picture of the sideways trailer in this report.

    He chose a really bad place to pass. Maybe he came up on the car too quick and that was the only option other than rear end the car. Maybe it was a old couple which are notorious for going slower than the speed limit cause an accident and never look back.

    Super Trucker = Fast, Careless, and doesn't waste time!! That's wat it means n my books! There could have been many factors on what happened and why he rolled the truck over. Load could have shifted and caused the roll over. Nobody really knows besides the driver behind the wheel and his actions. Like others have said, lucky nobody was seriously injured! The potatoes are still alive and prolly at meijers!!
