Scary Video

Take a look at the "Top Stories" Video entitled "Web Extra: Serious Accident Closes I-83" http://wjz.com For those of you not familiar with the area this is between Baltimore, MD and York, PA just south of the MD/PA line. It is on a rather tall bridge over the Gunpowder River.

If anyone can figure out how to set the URL to go directly to the video please help!!

Thanks Hutch!! My computer skills sometimes let me down

There is a pretty good downhill grade before you get to this bridge, so I would think maybe too much speed You can see the grade when they pan back to show the traffic backup.

JohnB is on a distinguished road
First, glad the folks inside are OK.

Second, I too hate to see these things and with the age of internet and RV forums we see them a few times a year. And every time it feels just as bad.

Do not know what happened and seeing these types of things sends a message to all of us to learn the most we can about WD hitches and anti sway controls along with an adequate TV setup.

If any one of our Sunline family friends needs help or has any questions about their towing setup, do not be afraid to ask. We have many willing to help with no questions asked.

Safe Travels

John

We see so many of these accidents here in Florida in the winter as the snow birds migrate. I seems every year someone in a big bus crashes into a gas pump and burns the station down. It has always erked me that a person can walk in the Lazy Days(big Florida RV center) by a huge motorhome and drive away. I think a vehicle that big should require some training or at least a license endorsment. I have been on I-75 driving the usual 75 ( kind of slow for Florida roads) and been past by TT's driving at least 80 - 85 . They are swaying all over the road and dont seem to give a hoot.
