    I saw the entire thing! Whoever was driving the vehicle had stopped in the road while it was pouring down rain! The truck tried slowing and ended up trying to dodge the vehicle. The truck tried to right itself but it’s backend went over and pulled his cab over, which made the cab go forwards and back and then over. Come to find out, the person driving the vehicle had been break checking people in town before any of this occurred. They would cut people off and slam on their breaks! That’s dangerous business doing that kind of stunt when it’s pouring down rain. I don’t know if they were looking for a pay day or what!

    I’m sorry to see the upward trend in truck accidents nation wide. As a veteran truck driver I am hopeful that this trend will change.

    The logger and woodchip trucks are some of the most reckless on the road. My mom had one driving right on he b**per blaring his air horn because she wouldn’t go any faster on 35 in a 45 mph zone with cars in front of her. She couldn’t go faster if she wanted to.
    The sheriff’s dept and kosy police need to be watching for and citing these unsafe drivers on our roads.

    I follow a technique called s***e cution. I make sure I have 3 to 5 count Mississippi between me and the vehicle in front of me. If someone is close behind me I safely yield to the right and sometimes I’ll even pull over. I drive a lot with my job and our vehicles are targets. The whole break check thing sometimes is people trying to get insurance claims. Y’all be safe
