    Yes with a 3 trailer or 4 trailer combination road train if a driver swerves it is only going to end badly, its always the third or fourth trailer that will fish tail, even under normal driving conditions which is why the tyres on the back trailers will always wear out quicker from all the side ways movement, all they need is a little extra encouragement from an operator swerving and they'll fly out, if loaded is the worse case scenario, if their top heavy loaded with Iron ore its a sure bet, transport companies try and teach drivers not to swerve but easier said than done, as the natural reaction is to swerve, my guess would be either a camel, horse, cow, or bull has walked across in front of the driver, or some vehicle and the driver has reacted to it.

    Looked like he just wasn’t paying attention and took the curve too fast and had to take it wider and then swerved back
