Looks like a big ass liquid pump, for irrigation, oil, or maybe its a fracking pump.
Regardless, there's plenty of qualified drivers, they just happened to not pick one.

I assumed that the truck jackknifed while trying to avoid something stupid being done by somebody else. And that moderately high speeds were involved.

The only flaw I see in my assumption is the lack of skid marks and disturbed vegetation on the edges of the road.

Half an hour of searching. Shouldn't have spent so much time on this, but I did find some more pictures.

Looks like he was trying to turn around

Yes, definitely trying to turn around, that's why Pam said, should've backed out.

Here is an idea of what might have happened.

And this one is just for giggles.

That's what it looked like. He can only pull that off when there's plenty of room behind the trailer, not in a concrete canyon.

Want to see what Pam sees every day?

...or, rather, doesn't see?

My Grandfather told me. "When you pass a truck, don't pull over till you can see the drivers face in the window."

We pulled up to a toll booth in a little hatchback once and a truck slowly pulled in behind us, and when the gate rose for us, the truck behind us started moving before we did, and it rear ended us very slowly. No damage. Nobody hurt. Bumper not even scratched. But I'm convinced that the driver forgot that he pulled in behind us and then couldn't see us and when the gate rose and the light turned green he just pulled forward on autopilot. My dad was driving, and that probably explains why we were slow to start. It's kind of scary that you can be in front of a truck and invisible.

'tis very true. Small cars can vanish if I am not watching carefully. I have run more than one off the road because they sneaked into my blind spot on my right and I couldn't see them.

And then there is this.
