There is this funny thing that happens when a rig rolls. Centrifugal force, it is called. The doors come open and the contents of the rig go flying out.

Why don't the contents just bounce around inside? Physics.

Just proves that money can buy everything but common sense and skill. Don't blame the spotter, he was a doofus and the driver should have spotted that right away. Looked like he was swatting fruit flies out there. Ya can't blame anyone but the loose nut behind the steering wheel for this accident.

The only time I don't wear one, is when I'm doing 10mph down a straight, flat dirt road quail hunting, moving from spot to spot, to walk different hills.

This raises an important point. Of course, if you have a spotter you have to follow his instructions. He is in charge. Not the driver. But just because some yahoo is making hand signs and running his mouth doesn't make him your spotter. And the moron in question, the moron outside the rig, that is, was not in proper position to advise anyone. I don't pay any attention to anyone on the hill other than my son Chris spotting for me, and the driver's fault here was following direction from some jerkoff who was obviously not in a proper position to spot that rig on that hill.
