There's a cable guard rail in the median that broke and hooked the rear tires.

Many years ago I worked one of these. This one though the large MH was pulling a large TT. We had to use dump trucks and front end loaders to clean it up. There was nothing but splinters left.

No one has said what the speed was. I didn't take video, it was provided by a truck driver's dash cam. I drive that portion of I10 a few times a week and most trucks are doing 60 to 70 mph. If the truck was doing 70 (the speed limit) the RV looks to be doing 75+. That's a lot of weight to get surprised with. The good thing is that the cable guards in the median kept the RV from shooting into the opposite lane of travel. According to the LA DOTD, the wire guard rails aren't designed to stop large vehicles, but it sure did a great job of slowing it down!

Those cables in the middle of the interstate saved lives that day.

Glad the injuries were minor, this could have been so much worse.
