Accident That Waiting To Happen

Driving home today on a local highway I saw a guy pulling a trailer and he probably didn't make it home. He was driving a fairly new toyota tacoma and was pulling a 16' 7,000Lb tandem axle car trailer. On his trailer he had a newer Ford F150 FX4. Just with that setup he was already overloading the trailer and was towing with a truck that was to small.
But it gets better! One tire of the trailer was completly gone all that was left was the spindle. I could see that the one tire that was on that side was tilted in so he already bent the axle.
I should have gotten a picture of it but i wanted to get away from him as fast as possible. And it didn't look like he planned on pulling over.

Makes you wonder if the newer Ford pickup on the trailer was even his.....or if he had permission to haul it if it wasn't.

Yea I'm not sure why he had the Ford was on the trailer and not the toyota. I was getting into my truck and saw him go past and it looked like a raptor on the trailer from where i was at. I caught up to him 5 miles down the road. He probably bought the truck on ebay and was afraid to drive it cause it wasn't insured. But what a *******
