    Those looked like aluminum coils from the pics. Hauled in a Conestoga probably secured with a strap or 2. Used to watch guys haul those out of Indiana 8-9 on a trailer eye to the sky and use 1 strap each

    Oops!! Not surprised. Lots of Trucks around here. More and more DOT patrolling the area. Looks like someone was in a hurry. Usually the cause, one way or another.

    I use to haul a lot of this stuff from a local steel plant.

    Some guy loaded few years ago and never belly wrapped it, and must not have made sure they were tight together. As he went west on I-64 here in WV he lost the load in a curve at the 2nd exit from Kentucky.

    Part of the load went over the bridge to the road below hitting a motorcycle, it killed the woman instantly from what I heard.

    That’s one thing I never want on my conscience…..

    These clowns pulling open deck and being sloppy and wreckless with their load securement are playing russian roulette with folks lives.
