    Man....that’s a tough picture to look at.

    I learned to pull end dump in Hawaii and it was pounded into my head that if it’s not level the trailer doesn’t go up.

    Terrible, but stupid dumping at that angle period. End dumps are not made for that.

    Looks like he backed over a curb also.

    Looking at the other load, he was on the curb when he lifted it., I can't belive they were dumping like that, those things are easy to turn over if you do everything right.

    How in the world did the truck end up at that angle? The truck is supposed to be straight right?

    That's what I thought.
    I didn't know you could dump a load jackknifed
    Like that.
    I never done dump trucks,so what do I know.
    I know I've never seen it done before.
