I’m not buying it!

SouthTownStar is reporting on a 3-car wedge that turned over while turning at an gooseneck hitch on a 3-car wedge.intersection. I am not questioning their reporting but I am questioning the quote “when the SUVs shifted”. Pretty hard to have that happen unless you have them sitting on ice or something weird which is not reflected in the pictures.  It is apparent in the pictures that the trailer is equipped with a goose-neck style hitch as opposed to a fifth-wheel. It sounds as though he delivered one of the three units which probably left most of the weight of the other two well forward on the trailer. Since the goose-neck provides NO side two side stability, it would be relatively easy to simple turn the entire trailer on it’s side by turning too fast and/or clipping a curb on the inside.

  1. So is it the driver’s fault? Most likely if he hasn’t secured the vehicles properly and had all the weight had shifted to the front end of the trailer. It is unfortunate to see such accidents happen.
