MSNBC reports this siting of a toppled truck up on the highway near Shawnee, OK. The truck lay on its side, its former contents in a spilled mess sprawling the ground below. The truck appears to be on the verge of still tipping over the bridge, not quite balancing in its already fallen position. Reports show this truck catastrophe is only a raindrop in the sea of disarray that the deadly twister has caused.
Natural disasters is one of the unpreventable causes of trucker fatalities, but every precaution must be taken to sometimes NOT brave the weather conditions, or if slightly weather -permitting, to at least ensure safe securement of loads with proper strap count and double checking the vehicles functions before heading out.
