This one is actually quite incredible.
If you look at the tow hitch, you can see that the boat and trailer actually saved that pick-up from falling down to what I imagine would be death.

Amazing image! Especially as I think most of us who have driven for several years have seen at least one or two incidents where a hitch has 'given way' On something being towed.

this type of accident accrues due to high speed and over control. Lat year we are also facing such type of problem when we decided to for fishing rod for sale in Sharjah but are lucky to escape from the accident.

That sounds scary. Glad that you were OK. The person in the photo was very lucky that the tow-hitch held the weight of the pick-up. I think I would be re-naming that boat 'Lucky'
Have a good day!

Apparently it is all down to the trailer's safety chains that saves these people from falling.
