Hope this works. Towing a 5er over 90 mph!

If you do have a Facebook account you can log in and see the video. However I have to question if he was really doing 90 mph as his closing rate on the trailer in the #2 lane doesn't seem that great. In any case he probably is going too fast.

I have a Facebook account, but still can't view due to the flash requirement. I could read the comments posted about it though. Most people don't use adobe flash crap on Facebook, but this one is.

So who is the dumb one? The person driving the truck pulling the 5th wheel OR the fool filming this?? 90 probably not.

very, very doubtful of the 90MPH claim. Why did the auto driver not show his speedometer?

iPads can play flash videos, you just have to download the app that allows it. I have it on both an iPad1 and iPad4. The .app is called Cloud Browse. I just fired up the ipad, typed the url in the link and logged in. No problem, iPad plays the video. So many people miss some good videos because they think that the iPad/iPhone cannot view them.

There are many different ways of making a video and many of them are not with a handheld camera.

Good question. Possible answer is stationary camera.
======================

If in fact he was/is doing 90mph I wonder what trailer tires he has on there that will handle that speed. Typically they are rated for not greater than 65 mph.

Edited: p.s., there are several browsers made for the iPad/iPhone that will view flash video.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

I thought the same thing!! The guy filming would have been the second to arrive at the scene of the accident. If they were really going 90 mph, he no way could have avoided the wreck in front of him!!
