    looked like to me, he had a bit more room on his right side. maybe he could have made it, had he been closer to the right edge?

    those cars parked, didn;t help him any either.

    He didn't swing wide enough from the very beginning of the first turn.

    That's those crazy transfer trailers I think that's what they call them out west right?

    If he just had a good tri axle dump truck like we use out east he would zip right through there and been back to the Quarry in no time.

    But he did look like he could have made a wider swing.

    Pretty sure that happened in the Lower Mainland of BC judging by the style of dump box, trailer setup and the license plate.

    Pretty much par for the course there.......

    Sure looked like a BC plate up front. Video isn't super clear.

    You're correct; the other wreck was in Pensacola; the log truck.

    I thought Florida had Bridge laws like we do in Pennsylvania and they use tri axle dump trucks and regular dump trailers.

    The only place that I've ever seen those transfer trailers like that is out west.
