    It's just typical of how unsafe bottom feeding dry vans are. And how skillful flatbed / equipment haulers are.

    The OM hates it when the crane boom chops the truck in two.

    I'll betcha there was a hint O' frost on those roads. It's usually present on those curves north of Shaniko to Kent.

    The toilet paper looks like it's still good. A real testament to the safety and engineering that goes into modern packaging.

    Was the "flatbed CMV" a hotshot or actual class 8 truck/trailer?

    Darwin must have been napping......
    A CMV, hauling a loaded flatbed trailer was driving southbound when he attempted to pass on a corner in a no-passing zone at a high rate of speed in the dark. While passing, the operator slammed on the brakes leaving over 200 feet of skid marks before the trailer partially jackknifed and struck this northbound red CMV nearly head-on, tearing off the entire right side of the cab.

    They raised the speed limit to 60 from 55 years back and it is still not fast enough for some so called professional drivers. They will risk your life and even their own life to get in front of you smh.
