Safety Tip and Be Aware

This accident happened and you'll notice the driver of the pickup was killed when the vehicles on his wedge trailer weren't properly secured and when he hit the back of the semi, they came off, crushed the cab and killed him and luckily didn't kill anyone else. I don't know how many times I've seen people with 2 straps on the front of a vehicle and 1 on the back. Use your head and be safe when pulling a trailer, and remember, you're going to need more stopping distance so you need to make sure you're always looking ahead.

Here's a link to the accident yesterday.

Yikes! strapping them down right is key, but not wrecking even better. Leave enough room and predict every scenario and avoid them. I hate to see the bigger rigs in accidents, they are fairly few and far between.

On a side note, I just sent Stretch a note today. I have my dates, I need to move two vehicles (accord and explorer) DC to Vegas w/ pickup date first or second week in July. Stretch probably not want to deal with me after that wide off-road car I did, that was a hassle for all parties - but he got it done. Just trying to move these two cheap.

Agree that was bad.
Thing to remember is that loose items in the bed of your truck will do the same thing. Been to too many accidents (fire dept.) where stuff in the bed or back seat did real damage

Respect to the lost driver, I cant help but to notice he pushed that whole rig... the dodge must have been carrying some speed.

Saw a loaded, box rail type toolbox, come out of a truck that rolled and went about 60 feet through a cornfield cutting down the standing corn like a razor, it took 4 big guys to carry that toolbox out of the field.

I often wonder what ppl are thinking when I pull up behind them & the rear window ledge is covered with junk, that junk becomes a projectile if the car was in a wreck....
