Running from the law...

I'm think'n a properly set up hitch and he would have made it...
Skip ahead to about 1:30 mark for crash.

I always wondered what would happen if somebody didn’t heed the demands of the weight police.

Those dam China bombs blew out when they went over the spike strips. If he had good tires he would still be going! 🤣🤣

One peeved RV owner

Whoever he stole that rig from is one peeved RV guy.
This stooge thought he could swerve enough to miss the spike strips....nope, not with that TT behind him.

But the hitch for some reason, held! Looks like it is still connected to what's left!

I’m surprised the trailer walls didn’t come apart when rolling over.

Either that or planning his upgrade, using the Insurance check to pay for most of it.

The news story didn't mention anything about the rig being stolen.
It started as a traffic stop and the suspect drove off.

It makes you wonder what he may have been making in that trailer. Instead of "Breaking Bad", this was braking bad.

Yikes! Judging from the way that was swaying at the beginning of the video clip he needed an anti-sway bar along with a wdh.

A thief. Found the trailer, dropped it onto the ball and fled. Getting out of the truck he knew the drill, hands up, on your knees, and face down.
