    Funny how some truckers don't know anything about the forces at work when they go around corners.

    Wonder if he passed the pee in the bottle test afterwards?

    That is great. i had a dump truck do the same thing in front of me at a major intersection. I can only imagine the feeling you get while holding on to the steering wheel as the truck you are driving slowly tips over on its side. Must be that same feeling you get when you are falling with a dash of panic and a teaspoon of embarrassment thrown in.

    Tbone, was the driver sharing that bottle of wild turkey with you?

    Funny how your first thought was to just grab the camera.
