Victim of weather or fatigue? - Maybe both.

Another victim of the last winter blast . . . or was it?

The tracks from this truck were straight as the road started to take a gentle
bend. Maybe the driver was suffering from fatigue or tunnel vision and did not notice the bend till it was too late.

This region is notorious for white outs, so perhaps the driver could not see the bend in the road.

The driver may have been trying to look through a dirty or snow covered windshield.

Whatever the reason, the damage is done and it becomes another learning opportunity and an example of winter hazards drivers deal with in northern a climate.

They run truck drivers way too many hours. There are laws in place, but I don't know a single one that's allowed to follow them, and still keep their job.

Keep up the interesting posts!
