Don't let this guy near your tractor.

 

 

 

Believe it or not the guy survived. He is pretty banged up though.

Tractor's in a ball of crushed up metal and ready for the crusher I bet!  I see it coming off trailer in one shot, then it kinda got out of the shot, more on truck. I'm sure it didn't stay on trailer, and wonder if TRAILER even stayed hooked up?  I drive real slow with mine on, backing up traffic on two lanes and I don't care. I've had some items get loose on a strap or so, and one time launchd part of my golf cart body, so things CAN happen no matter how careful. Trailer towing in Slow range, not your regular speeds even tho it seems like stuff is holding on.

If you watch the video that UW put the link to, it shows a picture of the tractor still on the trailer.
The trailer is not behind the truck, but right beside it.

How that guy survived... Whew. He should be counting his blessings after that.

That's what you get for driving between the lanes! Glad he will pull through!

I think if he had not had the trailer he would have made it. That would have been an awesome video.

30 or 40 more feet and he would have aced it.

 

Shame about the truck, and tractor, but, apparently, some one wasn't paying attention.

Simplicity Conquest or Prestige?

He only survived because of airbags. That abutment was a 16" vertical concrete wall, he wasn't down far enough to hit the slope paving.

"Driver ad a medical condition just before the accident"

Sounds like cruise control and a heart attack?

Well, if he didn't have one before, the launch should have taken care of that!
