I Hope This Was No One Here

I was getting on 64 East Bound at the Kanawah City WV on ramp.

I don't know if they tried to take the turn too fast with an over loaded truck, or someone ran them off coming up the on ramp. I hope they are ok. The TV made it all the way over the median, and half of the toy hauler, and it was split in half with stuff all over the road.

That looks bad. Scary part is I don't see the tow vehicle, so it must have been down below road grade. Hope nobody got hurt too badly.

Is your son OK? He looked a little frantic in one of the pics.

I glad you had the good sense to be paying attention to the road and let someone else take the pictures.

The fourth picture has the gnarled TV over the rail. Its blends in with the other fire truck on the other side of the interstate. What was funny was my kids started taking pictures with their DS as well. My wife was on the the other side with her iPhone, sorry not having the greatest pictures. I could not get to my Bionic for betters ones . The DS pictures turned out pretty good. I love the back window in the my Tundra that drops all the way down. You can see more of everything out of it.

I really feel bad for whom ever is towing. It looked like a F150, but it was tough to tell. It looked like they were both still connected.

Looks almost like a case of too much TT for the TV at high speed.

Can't really tell if it was a bumper pull or a 5th wheel.

I drive on that road a lot, 95% of people driving on it, drive like they are on a race track, and they are driving to win! And it don't matter what they a towing, I will be driving 70 mph. and they will pass me like I'm setting still.
