Questionable Wrecker operators.
Since the load is on the right side, well duh.

Questionable "driver" who's probably now unemployed or unemployable in Trucking. Lesson LEARNED the hard way.
What drivers carry enough straps to secure loads? The only real straps that would work (and are cumbersome to use) are CARGO NETTING STRAPS like Airlines, USPS, FEDEX use.

"driver" might also have been travelling too fast.
All they need now is a load of orange juice. ...
Even back in the day Overnite put airbags between skids that were stacked.
Such as computers,or some other high ticket items.
Air bags took care of any load shifting,the best loads always rode the better high & tight.
The cost of a compressor & bags are way cheaper than big freight claims,along with very unhappy customers.
At one time several liquor warehouses in this area had their product brought in by rail because of the pricing. There was so much damage & missing bottles they went to truck haul even though the cost was some higher there was no loss or damage. As best I know the liquor is still brought in from the distillers by truck.
