Default oops

We had one of our gravel train drivers flip his lead trailer over on Tues. Today he had a blow out on a steer tire on M46. He went in a big ditch, tipped both trailers over & it looks like the semi is totaled. While I'm at the wreck site another one of our guys flips his lead trailer over. Sure hope tomorrow goes better.

I had one of those flip in front of me a couple of years ago. It was coming from the other direction an a 2 lane road. It was pretty exciting..

I hope your drivers are OK. That's the important thing.
