    Driver is lucky to be alive.He had some serious injury's he is having to deal with now.Most likely unable to work anymore.All the comment's is why I do not belong to any of those forums.Don't know what happened.Doesn't take much to run off the hwy up thru there.

    That's just the times we're living in.This whole world needs a good thinning out but that's just my opinion.

    And it doesn't matter whose fault. It only takes an instant is the thing.I wish everybody would remember that.

    If you’re linehaul, they’re paying you top dollar to not do stuff like this. Part of your job is to get proper rest during the day and don’t you ever forget it

    I hope the best for the driver. This really was on my mind yesterday as I ran my run. Two lane going up and down the mountains. Tight curves. Lot’s of wildlife. But a driver flipped a trailer a number of years ago. Determined that the dock loaded all of the weight on one side. Part of my final walk around is seeing if I have a leaner. I’ve refused to pull a trailer twice.

    Stooges on the dock think nothing wrong with loading 28k on the right side of a long box and barely 2k across the left,, thug life on that lift I guessing

    I had one a few months ago, 53'. 6 full totes left rear side, ~17,000, nothing to speak of very heavy on right rear, about 6,000 in big bulky empty auto racks in first 1/2. Trailer was leaning at dock before I even tried to hook to it. Thought I had two broken left springs when I pulled up to it. No reason for it, just laziness . Took em all of ten minutes to rework it after I got supervisor .
