    Must have been loaded, no? Not sure why they bailed, not going that fast. Cows all stacked on each other,,"dude, you're touching me",, we had our own little drama few days ago, Texas driver with a load of sticks, coming down Monarch Pass on Hy. 50. Maysville at the bottom of an 11 mile, 7% downhill. Many drivers not familiar with Hy.50, think it's an easy way around Denver. This driver found out the hard way.

    You'd have to be some kind of special to jump out of a moving truck for that.

    If he jumped out, they should take his license.

    One thing i learned and taught this to drivers, never quit driving, if you quit driving, youre gonna die.
    Most times you jump, your trailer will run over you.

    It took almost 60 years but someone finally caught that old elusive “Phantom 309” on camera.

    H e l l,we had one bail out of his truck in North Carolina on I-40 near Old Fort after he burned his brakes up. He didn’t stop at the brake check like he was supposed to and the truck ended up going into a ravine! It took 5 wreckers to recover the wreck. It was his inaugural run with the company-40,000 pounds of cole slaw in a (at the time) brand new reefer trailer!

    @High Stepper has some insight on this. I’m sure if he would have been running Red Diamond instead of Milo’s, he probably would’ve kept it upright because the truck would have just jumped that ditch.

    Outside drive tire is off the bead too. Wonder if the bull puller didn’t smack into stopped traffic before hitting the ditch.

    Monarch CAN be hairy, If you decide to roll over the top at 60... but it's not that bad, as long as you pay attention and not try to "make good time". But then I run Wolf Creek, US550, and Loveland Pass if I can still make delivery on time. I delivered a load of bags to Center, CO from Yakima, WA one time, and I took a pretty direct route to get there. Some parts of that route were NARROW, and a 10 mile section of the state highway was gravel.
