Ouch! I wonder what kind of anti-sway device was used, if any. Do you know?

A rollover is a nasty crash. Fortunately they only received minor injuries.
Please, update us if you learn what caused the rollover.

Sad. I'm glad they're okay. Speed? Truck size vs. trailer?

So to answer some questions, he has broken ribs, but that was from the airbags hitting him. He girlfriend has broken wrists..I guess a good endorsement for Dodge Ram 1500's...
As for what happened, he did have anti sway, but yes, it was a LARGE trailer. I suspected he was overweight, but I can't confirm.
So he was on the highway, and the trailer started swaying and he couldn't recover, and it flipped. That is all the information I got from his brother.
