Looks like you and Danny travel the same roads.

Oops, here is link to pic

I see another blue oval... and both posters drive bow ties!

Nonetheless, hate to see a trip end so badly for the traveler.

I saw a close up pic....front license tag off to the side...that's an Ecoboost.

The reason we traded in the Ecoboost for the F250 while we still had the V-Lite: YEAH, it'll pull it, if it means it leaves its guts on the pavement.

But can it control it and can it stop it?

don't understand why he does not just lock it in 4wd and pull it to the shoulder, I guess he only thinks about him-self.lol

Yes you have to love the phrase "it will pull it" BUT "can it STOP it safely under any circumstance?" Not suggesting that would be the case here by any means! Feel a sick feeling for these folks. Hope for this poor souls sake it wasn't their wrong doing that caused this!
