Seen this earlier but a longer video way before it lost its load, looks like something isn’t quite right with the right hand side rear wheel of the trailer, either bearing gone or under inflated causing it to wobble and lean, that’s no excuse for not strapping it though. Very lucky but I expect him to have a fine and wrapped knuckles.

That woman is very lucky to be alive!

The tractor driver should be made an example of and banned from driving for 5 years!

@Henarar @cattleman123 in light of this thread maybe you both may want to rethink your comments about not strapping loads.
for the second time, I said I didnt strap down I didnt say that the load was not secure.
There is more than one way to skin a cat

Absolutely appalling, so many scenarios in which that could have been fatal, cyclists, kids, disabled! :mad:

RTA s2 Dangerous Driving at the least; it's an either-way offence, so if he's lucky he'll be with the Mag's. But... if I were prosecuting I'd be going for an indictment - i.e. Crown Court appearance - and the full two years inside, expecting him to get 12 months and a minimum 12 month ban once out. (y)
