    It says he got a non preventable and they loaded him wrongly or something but thankfully it doesn't look like anyone got hurt

    At .04 seconds, you see the 4 wheeler hitting the ditch before they even went over, what was that, a reefer?

    Just looking at it it doesn't look like he was taking that curve too fast. Looks like a load shift from improper loading.

    Comprehension of our wonderful English Language goes overboard when it's reduced to one syllable words.

    "WTF? (CC phrased it as wtduck?)

    "It flipped"

    "WHAT?!"

    It Flipped etc.

    i found it interesting, the 4 wheelers passing by....

    which leads me to say, screw them if they wreck, just mosey along....

    As someone that pulls auto freight there is no way it was loaded top heavy. The racks the engines are shipped in simply will not allow it.
    The racks are holding either 2 or 3 engines and are designed to stack 2-3 high depending on engine. All engine loads I've ever pulled are 42-46K and loaded nose to tail
    It was heavy sure, but very unlikely top heavy. And this was from "Crash and Roll Stunt Team" so I'll tend to think he was simply going too fast for conditions (curve)
