I was going through Las Vegas on the 15th and saw what looked to be a horrific wreck involving a vehicle looking like a Suburban type pulling a TT that had something seriously go wrong and ended completely on its top. The TT was still hooked up and from where I could see it(I was southbound, it was northbound). The rig appeared to have slid on the right side and flipped when it hit the curb and went over the road edge. It appeared that no other vehicles were involved. Let's hope no one was seriously hurt. oh yeah, this was on I-15.

Unfortunately these things happen. Let it be taken as a warning, that we must be alert and ready to react when situations arrive.

I personally think RVers have a responsibility to help when every they can, thats why we have a hard time gettimg to where we go, on time.

It can be lonely and scary, when your sitting on the side of the road when you need help and everyone passes you by.

Is there any reason why you didn't stop and help, or was that already covered by other folks or emergency responders?

In instances where I've seen someone on the road, I've made a call to the authorities alerting them, but in MOST of those cases I felt it unsafe to stop with my rv/toad configuration, ESPECIALLY given I'm pushing 65 feet now....

They hook up the TT to the tow vehicle and then load the rear of the TT with too much weight. I saw a Suburban TT combo on it's side out in SD two years ago and one on TV this spring here in Minneapolis, MN.

If you have loaded your trailer incorrectly and it starts wagging, push the trailer brake button on your trailer brake controller not your brake peddle, Slow down, drive to a safe place and redistribute items in your trailer so that there is sufficient weight on your ball coupler.
