    In the video the chauffeur was to blame. He tried to make a turn with a vehicle in the way. Speed is the biggest reason trucks,engines,tenders get into accidents.

    My understanding is that that, predominately, the right front wheel left pavement and drivers over-corrected when returning to the pavement.
    I have to agree, especially where 'tankers' are (mostly) in use...on narrow, two-lane country roads that do not have hydrants, otherwise why would you need a tanker. Another 'issue' is (not pertaining to rollovers), crashing through 'light' bridges in rural areas. There are many out there, and some are 'reduced' especially during the spring season.
