What went wrong?
News reports have been very vague and police are still investigating. However, trucks don’t just tip over by themselves. Tire blowouts, driving too fast around a curve, driver distraction, unbalanced loads and overloaded, top heavy trucks are all possibilities which could lead to a truck turning over on an interstate.
