    This was at the intersection of 49 & Indiana Toll Road in Chesterton, Indiana... I'm guessing the red truck realized he needed to get over 2 lanes to enter the tollway and didn't see the container truck? Couldn't get a picture of the front side... 20191023_153331.jpg 20191023_153337.jpg 20191023_153344.jpg

    lovesthedrive Is here to help

    I would say it is more likely the red truck felt he could muscle his way in and block the container truck. Road aggression?

    Probably not much damage-

    They shoulda moved the trucks by the Toll Booth somewhere to Not invite ATTENTION!!!!!!!!!!

    When the Cops show up- It all becomes a "he said she said" and someones getting a ticket (or both) to pay.

    Move that mess somewhere quiet- Exchange info- And Get going.

    They had 3 tow trucks on scene. Looked as if the container truck was pushed into the flatbed in the turning lane.

    If I get hit by another truck I will not move until police are on scene. No way.

    GK Express is out of Selma,California. Their driver OOS rate is above the threshold,and after this accident it isn’t going to get any lower.

    Well, there's a truck driver that's definitely not obsessed with his mirrors. :rolleyes:

    For What? I couldn't see much of anything to require a wreckher.

    We have a little slogan here, If your involved in a crash,And the vehicles can move- Get that C H I T off the road and on the shoulder or in a parking lot somewhere......

    Don't Invite Attention (Cops,Businessmen with expensive cameras,News Media-Nosey Joe Shmoes)
