Truck Pulling TT Accident

Seems a bit strange according to the description. Fortunately no one was injured.

Sounds like the female driver was traveling at high speed came upon the camper, colliding and continued under it until it came to rest.
Alot open for speculation but they mentioned the trailer brakes were locked on so I'd assume the emergency cable might of been pulled or a failure. Maybe he was going too slow, maybe the Altima driver too fast. We may never know.
Pretty amazing she made it that far under the trailer to say the least.

I noticed that there is no WDH on that TT/truck combo.

A low car going fast.
No load leveler bars so it may have been sagging the truck suspension which makes the trailer rear go up making it easier for a car to get wedged underneath. All speculation of course.

You can write that one down under things you don't see everyday. Glad no one was seriously hurt.

I donít know if this article says it, but one I read said that officers were responding to a disabled truck and travel trailer due to brake issues. It was then upgraded to a crash.

Makes me believe the travel trailer was at a complete stop in the roadway.

This is how I understood it as well.
