Default Some people need to pay attention or not drive RVs!

Oops...

Just wow. Obviously from the damage BEFORE the collision, there was a previous incident with going to the right. My favorite comment so far:

"I hope everyone was belted in and there wasn’t anyone walking around in the back. That’s one of the worst RV crashes I’ve seen in a long time. I know they’re not built very sturdy because I live in one and I often joke that I live in a styrofoam cooler but, when you see how they turn into bits of kindling in a crash, it’s sobering. Makes me glad to be stationary! Prayers to all of those affected by this crash."

Not a Wanderlodge owner.

Clearly the RVs fault, but the truck could have slowed down and maybe given a little ground.

Poor people. I hope no one was hurt.

showed that one to my wife, along with the "that's why I wanted a Wanderlodge". Not that I drive that way, but for the safety factor.

The driver of the truck said "Driver of Rv was uninsured and had a suspended license."
So the RV driver clearly should not have been on the road. If you watch the bottom edge of the RV, you can see where he had run over something else before this accident.

I bet the rv driver tried to blame the trucker for not slowing down to let him in, it happens every day, some idiot tries to get on the interstate but drives along slower than the traffic and expects someone to brake in order to create a gap for them
