Can you imagine if something like this happened to you and then you come to your trusted THT and all the members are speculating what you did wrong? Give the dude a break - a horrible day, a scary ass moment and a lot of paperwork and frustration ahead.

Did the tires blow and create a swerving trailer?.... or did a guy driving too fast while trailering get a sway started and roll the boat, blowing tires trying to stop?

(There’s a reason I prefer electric over surge brakes.)

I'm amazed that the trailer is still hooked to the hitch with all that twist in it.

looks like the truck has both rt side tires flat, but will never know if that was before or after the flip.

Looks like it spun him somehow and he’s facing the wrong way based on the LEO and semi locations.
