    Coming up 95 north yesterday in Flagler beach Florida and I see a temporary highway sign saying the scale house was closed.
    I thought well that’s good for me and but as I passed I saw why it was closed.
    A car hauler had come about a third of the way down the scale house ramp and then took an immediate right turn went across a small patch of grass and then buried the tractor completely in the woods?
    It was a white Peter built stinger, anyone heard or have any idea what happened ?
    Maybe fell asleep?

    I saw a car hauler rear end a van sitting on the scale in Georgia, top car broke the back doors.
    I would have liked to heard the first words from scale man and driver.

    My first thought was a steer tire blew. Some of these guys come off the interstate onto the ramps, even ramps to the scale house, at 50 - 60 mph. At 40+, if a steer tire blew, that could easily have sent him off the pavement, down through the grass into the trees.
