    This morning at 9am I'm traveling southbound on I-45 at Mike mark 97 in Willis, Tx they had the interstate shut down.

    Forced to exit to the access road I remember thinking I bet it's swift. Get a little closer and what do you know I guessed correctly. I did get a couple good shots on my phone though.

    All 3 lanes blocked, 2 wreckers trying to pull it up. This is a straightaway, don't know how he did it.

    Can't even drive on a dry ####ing highway.....

    At least he (she) was headed in the proper direction.

    We Weed out the Weak - Swifts latest slogan.

    It's not too difficult to flip a rig on smooth, dry, straight pavement. For example, you're loaded and not paying attention and start to drift, then over-correct quickly, then the center of gravity takes over and the truck is on it's side. The driver facing camera will probably tell the true story.
