Be careful out there

If youíre driving a gas or a diesel, itís just a fiberglass box screwed down onto two pieces of C channel steel. Take your time and slow down.

Looking at a video taken after the accident, the amount of devastation is amazing. I know it's there but I wasn't able to see much in the way of any framework. Looked like a lot of flimsy fiberglass though.

Unfortunately, there was a life lost and another person injured. Our prayers go out to that family.

Yeah it looks like they missed the on ramp to the rest area. You can see the chassis on the road at the end of the video

I either move over a lane or try to let them merge in front of me. The ones that really scare me are the ones that never, ever look and just drive to end of the ramp and move over when they run out of ramp. There was a guy on here a couple years ago that had one of those people drive right into the side of his 40ft motorhome.

Scariest is when you’re in right lane and car passes on left and dives in front of you then hard brakes to get off exit ramp. Hitting my trailer brakes hard, I’ve twice come so close to rear ending those idiots.
