I saw that video last summer. I recognized the road in the video and later verified it when driving the road. It's Alt US 16 south of Mt. Rushmore. The road is a scenic drive, with 3 looping tunnels, each giving a view of the monument. The poor 5th wheeler had also just ripped his A/C off the roof passing under a low bridge. While the video makes you a little sick, it's nice to see so many folks working so hard to help him get out of the ditch. By the way, the rock still shows scrapes from his trailer!

I've been on that road. That guys was nuts to try and take a 5th wheel through there. I'm wondering what happened once he got past where he is, because if I remember correctly, there are several more sharp loopbacks and tunnels.

That had to be an expensive lesson learned.

Royal Mess!

This is the middle tunnel on Iron Mountain Road. I was driving a 38 passenger tour bus that got held up on the other side of the tunnel. We had traffic backed up the mountain clear to the top. No choice for me but to turn around (drew applause) and go back.
Driving tours in the Black Hills I've seen a lot of dumber things than this.....

Brings back bad memories :-(

Had I not been in similar situation in June '03, I might have been judging this poor driver. I drove under a hotel canopy in South Dakota busting the A/C unit and roof structure around the A/C of our outgoing '05 Gulf Stream class C . Almost ruined our cross country trip Expensive lesson learned.
