    I don’t know about brake failure , I think it was a failure to brake. I couldn’t see any brake lights on the trailer. Maybe he just wasn’t paying attention and was on his phone or something.

    I second that one. He was probably going too fast by the time he got to the ramp to exit.

    I think it’s called truck driving, not missile guiding. If he did have brake failure pull the yellow button!!!!!hello.

    Right at the last few seconds of the video a police interceptor showed up(local or county sheriffs).

    Yep, but not one of the general public reacted. Maybe I'm old, maybe its my past training. I run towards not away. Or sit and video. Don't care what your driving.

    I’m sure some of those people were still in a state of shock. They literally almost met their maker can hauler style!!
    It’s like something out of a “Final Destination” movie!

    Block off the road, try to administer emergency first aid. Im only saying most people don't care anymore. They are to busy with a Starbucks order or a screen in there face.

    What I'm about to say is deemed sexist. But its not the point. In fire service your taught if your lost in a fire and find a hose line. Your never lost. Men run in to the fire, women run out. Male threads go away from pump, female threads go to the pump. Now lose the sexist 1950's meaning and realize it more about the type of people, not thier sex. We are at shortage for people that run into trouble to help others. But have a millions of people that want to video and talk about what they seen.

    Maybe I'm just getting old and complain alot. Nothing against you Sir.
