    he almost made it, wonder if his fuel tanks bottomed out at the roadway or the front of the trailer was touching the catwalk preventing forward motion.

    Maybe his trailer weight sucked him in just enough.

    Funny thing is that not just truck drivers do this. Last spring I was coming home from Billings and when I got to Bozeman there was a wrecker working in the east bound side of the freeway,,,,, Pulling a highway patrol car out of the median than had sunk to the frame.amazing what a little snowmelt will do to the ditches. That person that was speeding apparently got up on the right side of the bed that morning. The driver that I was running with and I laughed for the next 30 miles.

    Saw a woman do this exact same thing in Nashville a few weeks ago, although she was in a Honda, not
    a CMV. Her antics while attempting to get unstuck were quite entertaining. The guy in the truck beside me wanted to help push her out, but since no good deed goes unpunished he decided not to. Nothing like getting sued by an entitled motorist for vehicle damage caused by her own bad decision.

    Some people think they are above what others must go thru. So when they try to get out of it, they are actually getting into it, only worse! Just take your lumps like everyone Else.

    Oh yeah. All day long. If ya look at the video, even if he made it back onto the road, he would have to go 180 degrees back around. So, he would have been stuck on the other side. He never had a chance of making it. Stevie Wonder could have seen that! Here's your sign..... Lol
