Watch that first step!

I’m thinking the container truck driver wasn’t used to that big of step getting out of his rig but then again how often does he park on a car hauler?

This picture was sent to me from a drivers cell phone. the front axle is hanging between the headrack and the trailer on a 9-car stinger rig. Here is a picture that I downloaded from a news story. It is taken from the other side looking up at the bridge where it happened. I think they could make an ad for the strength of Cottrell trailers from this one.

    I was working for Covey at the time this happened. I was told that the car hauler was stopped on the freeway because of traffic and the container driver never stopped. Good thing that the car hauler left the back top table down. If he had not it would have been A LOT worse.
