Twasn't a thing wrong with truck or trailer. I couldn't find anything out the ordinary. It was probably a Volvo if they lived, a KIA if they died. See I didn't go back. I had a load that had to be on time. The trucker who stops to help you is probably an independent. It happened 14 yrs ago so probably they are out the hospital by now.

There does seem to be an inordinate number of these type of accidents at level crossings. (Grade crossings?)

I saw one a few months back where a low loader 'bottomed out' when it crossed a track bed that was higher than the road either side and became stuck. You can imagine the rest.

I just hope no-one was hurt.

CSX Rail just reworked a few of the rr crossings in downtown Digrville a month or so ago. They messed up the lead-up to the tracks at two crossings. Three semis got hung on the rails in two days due to improper re-grading of the roadway. Two of those trucks were struck by trains that allllmost stopped in time. Minor damage to the trucks in both instances, but one of those collisions caused a minor derailment. Had to bring in a crane to reset the front engine.

I guess the loaders nor driver knew better, or somebody added a straw.

The load was probably too heavy to put over thee axles. I'm geussing that the trailer itself was at fault and the driver simply missed the cracks in the underside which likely were visible and which showed the need for replacement, as repairs would be dangerous (and illegal).

To heavy for three axles? I only see two on the trailer?

Typo there. I meant to say "the axles" but double-struck the 'e' and didn't notice. Ooopsie.

This happened a couple of days ago.
I understand that the police have traced the offending vehicle but not the driver.
Tempers really must have been frayed. They'd have stopped for a cup of tea otherwise.
