    Good weather, good road, straight and no curves; how does that happen?
    It can happen when quickly swerving or changing lanes quickly.

    I was asking myself the same question. A couple guesses:
    1.Distracted driving
    2.DWT(Driving While Tired-fatigue/tunnel vision)

    Take a better look at the further back picture and it happened in a curve. Speed limit was most likely 60mph and they where probably not paying good enough attention. The corners on the 2 lane highways out here can kinda sneak up on you if your not careful.

    Hwy 17 out of Bridgeport is anything but straight. Back when the mill in Omak was running we’d come out of there stacked about 13ft high and you had to pay attention to what you were doing. My guess is that a curve snuck up on him because he wasn’t paying attention and he jerked the wheel when the steer tire dropped off the edge.

    Also keep in mind that he probably had close to 70k payload on the trailer so there’s a good chance he was pretty tall.
     
    Bud A. Thanks this.

    Load securement wasn't very good either
