I showed the pic to my trucking dispatcher buddy this morning - he said "let me guess, blew over in Wyoming, Elk Mountain area maybe".

Transporter should have known better - the high winds have been all over the news. So sorry that happened.

Don't want to dwell on someone's misfortune, but...
Seems like a possible opportunity here. It's one thing for a trailer to go over and another thing for the tow vehicle. I'm wondering if it's possible to develop some kind of safety mechanism that allows for the release of the hitch once a certain amount of force exerts itself upon the jaws.
