Default Class A with a tag in the ditch

About noon today on the Trans Canada Highway (17) headed for Thunder Bay, Ontario...just at the sign stating the beginning of the Eastern Time Zone...we came upon a big Class A with a tag in the ditch across the road from us.

It was about 45 degrees farther down that just being on its side. I could see the entire underside of the coach yet it was not completely upside down.

There were no authorities on site but cones were out to warn westbound traffic away from the wreck. The site was on a slight curve but not enough to tip one over at speed.

I have to suspect a blowout.

Does anyone have any details?

Stopping on highway 17 in that area is near impossible. Lots of accidents along there. Most interstates are not comparable to Canadian highways. Safe travels and watch for moose!

I know, I know, Randy but like Jeff said I couldn't stop because by the time it clicked on me that it was a MH gone completely tires up, I was past the place to pull over.

I saw all the tires up in the air but I was going so fast in this little Mercedes Sprinter "C" that I could not see the steer tires. Might not have been a blow out. Could have been anything from going to sleep to having a pissed off cat jump on the drivers head and the wife pulling it off by the tail.
