I have more questions than answers. Looks like passenger tire let go so why did he go left? Were there signs that tire was going to go because why was the guy filming to begin with and if there were signs why film instead of flag down? Lastly.....are they sure that was fuel leaking from the RV because after that ride I know I personally would be leaking fluids from several orifices.

The guy was auto filming with a dash cam.

It was the driver side left tire that blew. Watch and you will see the left front side of the MH drop. Out of view from the guy with the dash cam. The person in the small car is the one who would need the laundry change.

He did an excellent job of keeping it upright. Never hit brakes In a blow out.

WOW! It's a miracle someone didn't get killed!

Someone needs to tell him about SteerSafe!

This is one of those times when I don't have anything good to say so it's best I say nothing...except, why was he in the left lane?

Wow! I am amazed he kept it straight and upright! Glad everyone survived! Its terrible he ended up in oncoming traffic, but if he hadn't have gotten back on pavement he probably would have went down in that ravine and had been killed. He stopped just past the bridge.

Best guess is passing someone who was puttering along or letting traffic merge onto the freeway. Happens often. Also not everyone drives "65".
