If he was texting, I hope they do find out.

Glad he survived, and hope he is OK.

They will probably give him a spanking at worst. Or how they say it now, give him a time out.

I forgot, spanking is now child abuse. It sqeulches their personality. It's true. It sqeulched mine. I had to be seen and not heard. Spare the rod, spoil the child. I didn't get spoiled!

Sorry, I was remembering while I could.

The accident looks like serious business.

I just looked up a 2011 Chevy Avalanche 130" wheel base and towing capacity states 8,100lbs. the Ultra-Lites weigh about 7200lbs on average. It looks like it was a combination of hitch and driving response of the situation.

you know, all wrecks are bad deals. here's one that has lurked on the web for a while. these folks were fortunate. too bad the videographer "wanted" them to wreck for a few hits on the video. BUT, there's a valuable lesson to be learned from it.
thank God it was material damage and not any harm to humans!

When the wind hits, not even a GMC dually can help that situation.
