That ramp is the worst. You can go around it doing 10 miles an hour and lay one over. That is a interchange that the state of Missouri really needs to change. There is a accident there just about everyday.

How does one turn over a large truck without exceeding the speed limit? This seems to happen a lot around here. Truckers need a 45mph speed limit on local highways and a right lane only rule would certainly help slow them down.

Whaow, take it easy on the guilty plea there, Judge Wopner. Now lets look at the evidence again, shall we? Now from my point of view, it looks like equipment failure to me. See, look at the skid marks from the right along side of the road. Most likely a busted seal, where it can cause the axle to lock up on one side/right side of the trailer. Causing the freight inside to lean to one side/right side of the trailer, losing balance, and rolling over. Very rarely does it happen with this type of YRC equipment, but most likely this is how this accident happened in this case.
