Wow that is quite a video. It looks like the truck drifted too far to the right in the last replay. He is lucky to be alive.

If that happened here at Golden or something the Dept of Highways would be sued as the road did break away while he was inside the guard rail so that is not good. We get the close like that on #1 many times.

Are you back home now Rob?

Yes March has been the worst I can remember ever and so it continues. At least it has warmed up a bit. I was complaining about it until I just watched the Texas videos.

I guess we will just sit quiet and get pruny

Watch the very end of the video. The truck was stuck and getting pulled by the towtruck. It then started to slide towards the guardrail and went over. The worst part about this video is there was probably a driver in that truck. He did NOT get out before it went over, unlike the towtruck driver who did get out.
