Click above to watch the video after the jump

We've all seen semi trucks turned turtle on the freeway before, but as it turns out, the cleanup aftermath of a rollover can be as action-packed as the initial calamity. Said another way, If we ever run into an overturned hauler on a dangerous stretch of mountain road in Chile, we now at least know what not to do.

Hit the jump to watch video of a semi that was flipped back over with a front-end loader in what is decidedly the wrong way. We don't want to spill all the beans here, but the post-jump video contains quite a bit of excitement – even if the camerawork isn't quite ready for Michael Bay. Enjoy the madness!

        It's missing Shie Lebouf's "No no no no no no!" lines.

      Uh, set the brakes or at least disconnect the air lines to the trailer, which would lock the trailer brakes and with the primary line(red) disconnected, the truck's air system will eventually bleed down, locking the tractor brakes.
      And that truck is a Freightliner Columbia, which is a subsidiary of Mercedes-Benz, so the driver cannot claim "Toyota Syndrome."

      maybe the hard landing when it was righted caused the brakes to become released.

      I THINK GETTING OUT OF THE WAY OF A RUNAWAY 80,000 lb TRUCK TAKES PRIORITY OVER GETTING THE SHOT
