TOAD in ditch

Just saw a likely TOAD in the ditch on the Natchez Trace parkway about 30 miles south of Tupelo, we were north bound and it was in the southbound ditch, appeared to be a white or light colored modern Jeep Cherokee or Grand Cherokee, no sign of the missing motorhome, or people park police were just showing up on site coming from the other direction as we approached. We did not stop (no shoulders, etc.) No visible damage that we could see, front bumper was intact.

Perhaps the RVer will amble over to the lost and found office!

I say ditch the safety cables and get the correct type of chains!
The unit detach should have set off a red light and an alarm no?

How do you know it was a TOAD, It might have been out of gas, or breakdown?

I am not 100% certain, though it was 40-50 feet off the side of the road, left the roadway at about a 30-40 degree angle going off into the woods with muddy tire skid marks leading up to its position as if the brakes were heavily applied, no sign of occupants getting out, no one standing around and the Cherokee / Grand Cherokee are a popular TOAD choice. So gave all the appearances of what one would expect to see in a lost TOAD. A park ranger had passed us just a few minutes before coming up on this scene, I am guessing the ranger I saw pulling to a stop and turning on his lights as we went by the scene was the same one that had passed us, and that he had made a U turn and was coming back to the scene when we saw him.
