I don't drive a semi, but wouldn't you think if you look in your side mirrors that you'd notice your trailer behind you up in the air if it was? This driver says he didn't notice it until he went under the metal thing over head that holds the highway signs for exits.

Re: Weird TX. News

I would think the driver would have had some trouble keeping the rig where it was suppose to be......Maybe the driver hadn't slept in a few days.....

Re: Weird TX. News

Would have to guess it was a dump trailer that was up and i have seen one before,stuck under a bridge.Would guess again,if he or she wasn't on a turn they probly wouldn't notice unless they did look in the mirrors as you say.There are drivers who forget to disengage the PTO when they drive down the road and it can happen.Doesn't do well for the PTO or tansmission either,let alone in this case i've seen-the trailer and bridge.
