Yes, I have seen cars slide under high oversize loads. I hate Fast and Furious for this alone.

No, Bruce, I hadn't seen THAT. Not yet, anyway. Pass the eye bleach, please!

I *have* seen sex toys in the trash/on the ground at truck stops. Even the dog, who actually found them, didn't want them! Bad Touch!

Mark your calendar: September 5th, 2017 "Day Without a Trucker" Protest & National Memorial Procession. Spread the word!

Truckers plan to drive past United States Capitol during "National Memorial Procession" to honor 500 brothers and sisters murdered on the job over the past decade and to protest those states that do not allow truckers to carry firearms to protect themselves. You may also participate locally by shutting down for the day. Sponsored by: TRUCKER LIVES MATTER (Small Business in Transportation Coalition).

Even a well-secured load can come through the cab. Should have had a "headache rack" installed. Those are large metal plates designed to angle a shifting load up and over the cab rather than penetrating through.

Good old California drivers. Gotta love em.

I have no way to figure this. I can see each side of the story happening, plus three ways it could have happened.

I bet this was either a stupid foreign driver or a rookie who had tunnel vision. There is NO WAY a competent driver wouldn't feel the initial impact and hear the tires squealing not to mention the trailer pulling to the right and not investigate.

I recognized that road, I-15, north out of San Bernardino, well before the narrator spoke it "Cajon Pass". It's a brutal unrelenting stretch of up-fucking-hill for about 20 miles. The truck was in the right hand lane doing his 40 mph or whatever. And *O*blivious, for sure.

Tha's a very rough stretch of road. Not the surface, just the slog. The opposite direction has runaway lanes of cushy beds of gravel where molten brakes go to die. That road's a bitch.
