The tires probably did that once the trailer was deep enough.

I never use my parking brake. Rolling into the lake happens when you don't put the truck in park.

Tires with air like to float and that trailer is so light, IMO it flipped over as a result of the tire buoyancy and axle position. Once flipped over the tires are higher than the heavy steel.

So in another word ... "physics"

That's crazy that the tire flotation was enough to twist the tubular steel, but not stronger than the trailer hitch.

Looks like the coupler became disconnected and it was being pulled by the safety chains. Must have popped off like a beer bottle top.

That truck sure held a lot of water.
