    Don't even have to be a car hauler to know that load wasn't going too far before tipping over.

    He came into that curve way to fast and then got on the brakes too hard too late... He would have been better off to slightly accelerate and pull the load through the curve... Although as fast as he was going I doubt the outcome would have been much different.

    Ya know i was thinking the same thing...

    I’m starting to wonder if modern vehicles are being made to put the 4-ways on automatically in a crash.

    I don't know about 4 ways but it looks like the driver was trying to slow down before the curve. Right at the beginning of the video you can see his taillights lit up. Wonder if he was having issues with his brakes.
     
    D.Tibbitt, Bud A. and JonJon78 Thank this.

    A lot of vehicles (including pickup trucks) have vehicle stability control,and I bet that probably engaged the brakes during the turn into the curve. Either way,that hotshot became a hot mess.
     
    Bud A. Thanks this.

    I had the same thought....if he had taken it slow, he would have made it....he realized he fouled up too late
     
    Bud A. Thanks this.
