Well guys I had another first at work on friday. came around a corner in a truck and trailer stock unit going well below the posted suggested speed (65 posted -60 my speed) and looked in my rear view mirror and my rear wheels of my trailer were about 12" off the ground Shocked Shocked Shocked
well guys it got real hairy about then wtf the trailer started to lean over and pushing accelerator didnt pull it up and the brakes didnt stop it tipping either Shocked Shocked well things got even worse then the trailer started to push the rear of the truck off the road so I just kept braking and steered into the skid as the whole shooting box fell over the trailer on its right and the truck on its left. wtf Shocked
BANG CRASH BANG and its all over Sad grabbed the phone and called boss for help and got out and started to free the 55 cows that were trapped in the crates Sad man I HATE to hurt animals I dont even like using the prodder to load them so I was running on adrenalin and very distressed. well the flashy lights arrived and people were everywhere. I was uninjured and the truck is hardly damaged at all. the trailer is a mess and 4 cows bought the big pasture in the sky Sad
my boss is being great and the police have ruled out driver error being the problem. A wheel rim looks to have failed either before or during the tipping so could have been the reason.
you guys all take extra care out there on the roads and be sure to be nice to the emergency services cause those guys are plurry amazing. the firemen used the "jaws of life" to free the trapped moos and that my friends makes my tears flow
take care
Mike.

Elvis, I'm glad you are ok mate!
Bugger about the trailer and cargo, but it would be big bummer if YOU are injured.
Thank goodness you are ok!

Glad to hear you are okay. That feeling of loss of control is definitely not nice. Too bad about stock. I have been promoting an emergency workers' day complete with a parade. Your report reminds me that I need to start lobbying again. BTW you did what you could in a bad situation. Sometimes you just are the one who gets the bad break.

Very Happy Glad to hear you are ok and that the law did not try to take their "pound of flesh" from you.I gave up on stock trucks back in the late eighties-I don't even like to haul my horse around anymore.Mostly to do with other drivers that don't have a clue.Hopefully the insurance adjusters won't try to make this something about you.They can have their own agenda sometimes!Good luck.

Wowzers! Glad you are ok! I've been in a couple vehicles that have rolled, its a wild experience for sure with quite the "pucker factor". Glad your boss is being great about it and IMO, its good they traced it to a bad rim rather than blaming the driver or somesuch.
