Sign pointing behind him is posted 20mph "S" curves. Side swiped the van, that may have caused a over reaction or it was a result of loosing control thru the curves. Bottom line it was not a good day for them!

I was thinking the same thing about speed and, if the driver =had= taken the right-hander too fast and got the trailer up on the left side wheels, you'd likely see scuff marks. Not saying he didn't do that, but I think there'd be evidence of it. Not beyond imagination that the trailer tipped right up on the edge and the driver just couldn't get it back down. Rollovers don't always happen quickly.

It was lack of situational awareness for sure....

How do we know he was going too fast? I would have thought it would have flipped the opposite way.

Anyway this was fascinating, how they got that thing up and connected to a flatbed!

If you liked that, then you should check out Highway through Hell on Netflix.

I couldn't find the video of him going too fast. Is it separate from this one? This one only showed the aftermath of an accident.

Highway through Hell

I watched that series but thought it had been dropped. Are the shows on Net flicks older stuff or current?
