    Friend sent me this the other day - stored where he lives in SC.

    Truck ran into the back of another in stopped traffic for bridge construction.

    Killed instantly by load - 6 by 6 lumber.

    Most flatbed loads need to be driven like a bunch of bowling balls zip tied to the deck - not a van load of toilet paper.

    Talk about a mistake you only make once. Yikes.

    Rest in peace, driver.

    I see so many loads out there on the Highway that make me cringe looking at them.

    So many seem to have the mindset that because it has a strap on it there’s no chance of it moving. But paying full attention plays a big factor in it too.
    RIP driver….

    That's just like going downhill. You can only go downhill too fast one time! R.I.P. to that flatbed driver! I hate to see this kind of stuff, after being on the road and seeing more than i ever cared to see in A lifetime. And once you see something, you can't un-see it.
