from google translate:

Rollover occurred mid-afternoon Monday on Highway 20 East in Saint-Roch-des-Aulnaies.

The accident involved an SUV (sport utility vehicle) and the trailer he was pulling. Both vehicles ended up on the hood, following a loss of driver control. The accident injured two minors. "There was no incarceration on arrival. By cons, there was liquid leaks at the scene of the accident, something that was quickly controlled. Propane bottles were also secured, "to indicate the director of the Intermunicipal Service Fire Safety La Pocatière, Mr. Stéphane Dubé.

traffic slows

Occurred few meters after the viaduct providing access to Saint-Roch-des-Aulnaies on Highway 20 East, the accident caused a major traffic delays. For nearly 45 minutes, the Transport Ministry has banned access to Highway 20, from Saint-Roch-des-Aulnaies. Fluid flow is again one hour after the event

Airstream roll-over near Quebec City

Always brings up these videos when I see this.


A dealer in Ontario sets up all kinds of cars to to triple axle Airstreams. I saw a Honda Minivan towing a 10,000 lb Airstream once!

But the salesman said I could easily tow it...

I don't follow the instructions of the manufacturer.. I just go out and camp because they said I could tow this..

That would be Andy Thomson at Can-Am RV in London ON. We had some work done there on our last TV, reinforcing the receiver and adjusting the WDH. Top notch guys, top notch work.

Looks like the Airstream did better than the Jeep.
