Trucker's Journal

I've been a trucker since November, 2004. Before that I was an accountant for many years. I'm having fun and actually making more than I did before. Go figure....

OOPS! I saw this recently at a truck stop and wondered how it happened. I came up with two possibilities: 1) someone backed into the trailer at a fairly high rate of speed, or, 2) the driver tried taking a corner without swinging wide enough. If the first, then you can bet the offending driver didn't stick around very long. If the second, then you can almost rest assured that the driver is now looking for another job. It's the worst example of trailer damage I've seen short of a total "crash and burn" incident or a rollover. I'm glad I wasn't involved!
