    All it takes is to blow a steer tire to put you in a ditch.

    Maybe truck driver was not at fault. I travel that road on a regular basis. Too many people in a big hurry. They will cut you off in a heartbeat. They especially do it to semis that are not going fast enough for them. I have also seen them pull in front of semis coming up to red lights. Those things can’t stop on a dime!

    Trying to operate trains on the highway on rubber tires with very little control in cases if heavy braking in heavy traffic. Just shouldn’t be. Just saying!

    So glad the driver was not hurt!

    Darn good driver to keep the truck upright.

    No. It just looks like it is pulling three trailers. We went by it this morning and the one you see, in the picture, is actually the cab.

    I thought it was illegal to double tow in FL let alone triple tow.

    I thought double towing in FL was illegal let alone triple towing.

    It’s just doubles. Triples are not permitted in FL. Heavy fog, over speed, inattentive driver likely to blame. Couldn’t see more than 30-50 yards this morning on 29.

    This looks like it could have been much worse than it was thank God no other vehicle was involved. So be safe out there my friends

    Is this a semi-tractor pulling 3 trailers?
    Amazing it stayed upright.
    Glad nobody was injured.
