Had to watch that at least 4 times to catch all the different stuff that was happening.

I'm not sure what caused that. The left hand side of the truck didn't dip down that I could see, as I would somewhat expect if it were a blown tire.

I think it's a conspiracy and sabotage by the regional governor

"E' odioso mettere assieme la tragedia accaduta oggi sull'A4 e i sempre pił insopportabili ritardi nell'avvio dei lavori della terza corsia". Lo afferma il presidente della Regione Veneto Giancarlo Galan che aggiunge: "Una tragedia in cui hanno perso la vita troppe persone resta una tragedia, ma mi auguro che non si perda altro tempo prezioso rispetto alle decisioni che devono essere prese per risolvere un'emergenza stradale di giorno in giorno sempre pił drammatica".

in short:

"this is a tragedy, but I hope it will teach a lesson to those who waste time discussing instead of starting the construction of the third lane, that highway is so congested the drivers face a dramatic emergency everyday higher."

{sooo.... let's cause a huge accident, maybe someone will take the needed decisions....}

The world is small...

I just read that the driver of the Van that was just overtaking the truck that caused the accident and rolls over in the front of the picture has been driven by the head of the office for public order of my old Mozart city, who happens to be a close relative of a colleague at the faculty. (He and his family are fine.)

you can tell you saw him first on CG

btw, now the most likely explanation is that the engine gripped...

I don't see how the engine seizing up would cause it to swerve?

I'm no mechanic, though.

I should have said "the most likely media explanation"...
