Was stuck in traffic south of Thompson Rd. just after the accident occurred. Detoured to North Rd. and saw the overturned truck, pop up and damaged motor home as well as all the debris.

Go to Dangeroustrailers.org and know that every hitch that is being used to tow has no national standards. Also know that anybody can drive a R.v that is bigger than a greyhound bus on a regular license.
