Michigan Load Failure


Recommended Posts

I found these photos on the interwebs, says this truck was hauling a 331,000 lb. press and the trailer failed. They weren't sure how they were going to move the thing out of the way. Nashville, Michigan Sep. 6th.

Im struggling to understand what has happened here, I'm guessing the truck has wandered off the road a bit 


Guess we will never know



Paul, seeing as the gooseneck of the trailer is detached, i am thinking mechanical failure on the locking system and the trailer came partially detached letting the deck hit the road causing the driver to loose control and flip.

the sudden deceleration would explain the snapped chains and the D-10 flipped over off the trailer .
