    My God what an idiot.

    According to the person who sent this, the driver has only

    been in the U.S. a few months. He had missed his turn by

    Billings MT. And figured he could go over the hill and continue

    on the road. Apparently he didn't know there were rail tracks

    on top of the grade which doesn't matter, he'd be stuck

    anyhow..... The truck owner figures he had to hit the angle

    at over 55 miles an hour in order to make the top. If you

    look close at some of the pictures you will see that it is only

    when the trailer pinched the rear tires of the truck that the

    truck stopped......

    I love the third picture that shows the tracks going through the

    field to get there. What a genius!!!



    I'm surprised he didn't take the power/communication line down

    with him!



    I wish I had pictures of him standing in front of his boss.

    The guys over on the RR forum speculate that the driver fell asleep at the wheel and just kept going through a "Tee" intersection.

    Funny thing is I don't believe it's in the US if you take a look at the trailer it says Regina , Saskatoon , Winnipeg and Toronto I believe its taken up here . There is no way it could climb that embankment and if he did there would be damage at the top of the trailer. I think he spun out and slid back down. Looks cold maybe black ice

    Must have been a hell of a jolt in the cabin going from the horizontal plane at 55mph to a what? almost an instantaneous 45 degree angle? The top rear cabin must have 'met' the air-conditioning unit.

    Ok that's just downright unbelievable... sure it wasn't his pet dog driving ? ;)

    How he ever got his truck drivers license must have been some kind of miracle, or accident...

    I think the word your looking for is "scary"...Don't get me started on the driver and if he should be driving or even in the country...
