It's not clear how this large Mack truck came to be on its side in the middle of the road, but it obviously needed to be moved from where it was probably impeding traffic.

In order to get it out of the way, a group of people employed a large bulldozer to get it right-side-up. Everything seems to go smoothly until the end, when the operation takes a clearly unintended turn.

Check out the video for yourself and see what not to do when moving an overturned truck from the road.

      Who wrote this story? That IS NOT a bulldozer nimrod! It's a rubber tired front end loader.

      That's not a bull dozer, it is a front end loader. Another "journalist" that doesn't do their homework.

      The operator should have rolled the bucket back instead of lifting. When the truck uprighted itself, the chain slacked and unhooked. Had he rolled the bucket all the way forward, then hooked up the chain, he could have rolled the bucket back and hoisted keeping the chain taught and hooked to the truck. Then he could have held it. Plus the truck should have had the brakes locked with lack of air pressure. That's an automatic lock up of the brakes. They must have been bad brakes to begin with! That truck would not have rolled otherwise!

        Unless it had (a) Bad safety valves that when the air pressure dropped under 50psi still stayed open, or (b) the truck still had over 50psi in the tanks because it had a good tight air system . One of my trucks I drove could sit for days with out the engine being run and when I got back to it still be sitting around 75-110 psi in both my primary and secondary tanks

      Lesson here, always set the brakes when parking even when turned over.

      Nice Bulldozer! Bulldozers have steel tracks and a blade.
