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.
That is all the info I need.
He had the wrong brand of oil in the motor.

That is sad, hope both recover fully and the crash occurred on the way home, not on the way to!

Sadly. On the way for a two week trip.


Final notice from MasterCard. Good! I'm sick of hearing from them.

I suspect all that "wrong oil" drained out when the truck was upside down! [emoticon]

Glad that they were not injured more seriously. It could have really been a disaster.

Glad they're going to be okay. Prowlers tend to be heavy, plus it was pretty long. Was that a Ram 1500 Hemi? I have one and wouldn't pull that trailer. Ouch, so sorry for them!

Zooming in, it looks like a Blue Ox hitch. Glad it wasn’t any worse. Hope they heal up and recover quickly.

That's one of the reasons I drive slowly.

See nowhere in article or follow up where speed (fast or slow) was even mentioned.

Glad no serious injuries.

I think the proper oil was used, but the issue, but chose regular vice synthetic oil to save money. Always buy and use synthetic oil, because you never know what will happen.

And, as momma always said, where clean underwear, just in case you get into a car wreck.
