Wonder how that Lippert frame held up from all the winching force?

Wow. That is one awesome video. I can only hope and pray I NEVER find myself in a position like that!

One thing that I do find very interesting is how so many people jumped in to help get this guy out of his situation. Of course, he was blocking traffic from all sides, but someone could have called the police, a tow truck, and who knows what else that could have ended up costing him MUCH more than a destroyed awning and embarrassment. About the time I loose faith in people, I see something like this. Granted the driver was in a situation, but I'm MORE impressed with everyone that pitched in to help him out!

Yeah, I was wondering the same thing about the frame. I wondered if he was actually winching the truck or the trailer. I almost thought he was hooked to the rear of the truck. I would love to know how he ended up in the predicament in the first place. Looks like the tree up high is what ripped the awning off, but why on earth was he so close to that side of the road so far before the turn. Anyway it sucks for him. I hate to see people get their stuff torn up regardless of how bad a driver they are

There are some narrow roads here in Northern CA with length restrictions and I know why, I have had a hard time with some of these roads and I am only 27' in length. This clip will make me think twice next time I am in that area. JMT

That doesn't look to be that tight of a turn judging from the white line. I can see that the road turns further down from where he/she got over the white line,but unless someone forced the driver over,I don't see why he went over the. Line.

It looks to me like the awning was taken off in the tunnel. The front AC is also damadged. If he had used both lanes on the curve, he would have been ok.

There does appear to be enough room to make that turn.

I would assume he was taking the turn on the inside and tight due to opposing traffic coming towards him. Situations like that require the drive to just hog the road. The way it has to be.
The owner of the Montana did post in the comment section about why it happened.
