    Wow indeed. I'm sure the driver is on their way to Walmart for some new underwear. Years ago, I've seen several single axle tractor trailers, laying on their side, with the cab pointed straight up in the air.:eek:

    Most likely they jackknifed,then the trailer came around broad side and tipped over.

    To quote the "Snowman", "We're gonna do what they say can't be done, we got a long way to go, and a short time to get there, I'm eastbound, just watch ol' Bandit run".

    I didn't know you could do a wheelie in a big rig. Hope everyone is ok.

    How would you go about getting out of the truck in a situation like that? Wait for the fire department with a ladder truck to show up?

    I'd have probably jumped out the passenger door onto the trailer, then hang off the edge and drop the last 2 feet or so onto the ground.
