    Unless they cut and removed straps before the photos it looks like they were about half a dozen straps short on that load.

    Driver says he wasn’t going fast……. What’s not fast on an on ramp ? I’ve hauled plenty of top heavy lumber loads and driven countless of on ramps, interchanges and never laid a load of lumber nor any truck on its side. Speed was definitely a factor on this incident.
