Ugly 5th wheel accident.

Taken from a FB group page, on turnpike in OK between Tulsa and OKC. No news on injuries, just says one vehicle wreck.
Be careful out there folks!

It was the rear truck tire that blew.

Everyone needs to know how to handle a tire blowout regardless of vehicle. Watch this video: RV The Critical Factor - YouTube

Dang, that was right by my exit where we live.
I'll have to ask my wife about it since she has channel 6s sister stations news app.
Amazing what people can walk away from alive!

Just read that facebook link.
We were on the turnpike coming home from camping at the lake, just about an hour before that post yesterday. But we got off an exit before to run by walmart.
Crazy....and a small world!

This is a good reason to pull a heavy camper with a dually. I pulled my 5ver with a single once, and decided a dually would be better. This just confirms the decision.
