Someone on there asks how long it would take before there was a debate over the G23s superior trailering. Lol

Yep, serious, totally. Just tried to imagine how such a thing can happen, there must be some serious torque involved. Well, of course, there might also be a third party involved, but unless you're parked aside the road, still then, he must have been fast.

Unless you have a career in accident reconstruction, your opinion is worthless. I've seen accident pics that are similar to this where the truck speed was only 35mph.... I think it's only fair to let the facts speak for themselves when they come to light, rather than speculating like you're doing.

Third. I do have a career in crash reconstruction and can tell you that any conclusion would be merely speculation based on the one photo posted.

Anyone have any other facts/details, such as single or multi-vehicle crash?

If you look closer, you 'll notice that the trailer is hanging up in the air on the side of the truck. And the space between the truck/trailer and the boat are pretty long. It has to be the speed that cause to separate them. If a third party hits, it would crumble together. The way the body of the truck mangled all around, it looks like it has been rolling over. Speed causes it to roll over. The third party cant cause it to roll over like that.... Just my 2 cent.....
