Grand Prairie Crash 18 October

Recommended Posts

Hey, does anyone know about a mishap on I-20 south of Grand Prairie between Dallas and Fort Worth involving a Class A whose house came completely off?

Apparently, the couple was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries. A miracle, considering the photo below.

I'm reminded of a Bounder mishap in which the house was shaken off the rig when it departed the highway.

The paint scheme and number of slides seen in the news chopper footage reminds me of my 2005 Excursion, but the chassis seems more in the mid-30s lengthwise.

An Airstream owner friend brought this to my attention, I wanted to do followup.

Here's another photo from DFW Scanner, which reported that "no serious injuries" were sustained, that the couple were transported as a precaution. 

The force vector seems to have been nearly perpendicular to the roadway, with the house portion coming to rest mere feet aft of the chassis.
