Good catch! And that’s not just any flux capacitor either, it’s the new and improved model with USB connector! You know what that means don’t you? That news crew is not from our time!!! [emoticon]

I hate stories like this, more so the sensationalism..
Once stopped the truck wasn't 'teetering' or 'dangling' and if it could roll would have rolled back onto road.
IF the driver indeed was DUI-will be paying for it a long time-however its the fact that driving under the influence ends any other comments, other circumstance are glossed over-end of story. Thats a disservice..Ya dont drink and drive-you make ignorant decisions-stupid reactions, innocents can suffer and even if not your fault -it is.

Drivers condition may have caused this accident, however it could have just as easily happened with no input (or lack of) from driver. Would have been an opportunity to educate or at least mention as many are unaware that conditions on a bridge, overpass etc, can be MUCH worse when crossing them.

Yup, No one knows the situation surrounding the incident. Super icy early season snow? Yup appears that way. Did the driver get cut off by another vehicle possibly out of control? Alkyhaul may or may not have been a factor. Good news is it ended about as well as that could.

Truck campers can be a good addition in the ice and snow yet they also can be a bad addition because of the weight magnifying any slippage, especially down hill.

I just took mine off for winter driving..

Glad it wasn't worse.

It wouldn't bother me to travel in bad weather with my camper.

I have what it takes. [emoticon]

It was a lot of snow that day, Arvada 16 inches, Boulder had 22 inches of snow. I was up in Leadville in May and it had 12 inches on the ground and still snowing, really don't like being out in those conditions.
