Were there high winds at the time? I multi-clicked on the pics and the tires looked intact.

Looks like the jack stand is down pretty low. I wonder if it caught the ground? I've seen this thing before. A jeep grand Cherokee on its side with a 28 foot sob on its side behind it. It was In The wind river range in wy. I'm guessing the TV was to small for the trailer in that case, either way it's a sad sight.

May you have at least one sunny day, and a soft chair to sit in..

Thats a shame. Maybe he had a long trip, fell asleep, swerved and lost it in the slope on the median.

Hope is not a plan.

Wreck -

Crosswinds? New owner towing home to rehab? No license plate, might have temporary running lights - and at the risk of making a totally tasteless joke "talk about rear end separation!" But seriously, obviously a roll like that COULD break the body loose from the shell, but is it possible that the shell broke loose from the floor, caught air, and pulled the Airstream over on it's side?

Anyone get an update? I surely hope the people walking around the wreck WERE from the upturned truck.

Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.

Then rental truck parked in the background is towing a truck on a flatbed. I wonder if these people are together and were moving a lot of stuff.

It does look like they were moving the unplated Airstream to somewhere. The trees in the background look like the wind was blowing pretty well.
