    They offered to bring in life councilors for the snow-flakes until they realized the snowflakes were real. They packed up then and drove away. I felt so much better.

    Sad trombone:apologetic:

    On the bright side , the driver kept the set upright , nobody hit it ( yet ) , AND it's not in a ditch or the median.

    Looks like everything is still connected. Can’t see if the front box is still connected, or if there’s glad hand damage though. Heck...chain the tractor as good as possible, swing the cab left in reverse, straighten it out and we’re on our way....after a good intra-trip inspection (and a visit to the men’s room). Next destination: the TM’s office for a warning letter. Kudos to the fellow (or lady) for keeping it upright and out of the ditch.

    Take a closer look. He can't swing the cab left in reverse it kind of hard to do when the truck is against the guard rail. Go forward is his only choice

    Is this considered an accident if there was no damage to any vehicles and no contact with the guardrail?

    Ahhh...I see that now. Thanks, FBN. These smartphone screens are so small, I’m pushing 60 years old and...well, you know the drill.

    I believe if you need a tow truck( which he did), it is considered an accident. I live 20 minutes from where this happened and the road conditions on the same road were good. What a difference a few miles, and a few degrees, can make. Nor’Easter’s are nasty that way.

    On second thought , if this would've been really bad , a *cough* concealment team *cough* would've been brought in , covered up all the logos , gave the XPO driver an Old Dominion uniform , and poored booze all over the other drivers standing around. The rest of the team would politely ask to use your cell phone then upload a virus to erase any videos you may have of the scene.

    In all seriousness , I've been to a scene where a driver put one under a low bridge and you would have thought Martians landed the way upper management was acting. Sheets over the logos and a blanket over the driver.

    Nothing to see here folks. Just hiding XPO's mistake.
