He was driving to fast/not setup correctly, how else did he end up in the middle of the intersection? I'm sorry if the original poster thought I called him an idiot, that wasn't my intention, he is asking for advise, so I gave mine.
If my very brief research is correct, an f150 can tow about 10,000 lbs, his 5er is about that, putting him at a tow capacity that is less than ideal in my book, hence saying your expectations are to high.
