Caleb Rowberry, the owner of the semitruck, tells that a pickup pulling a fifth wheel trailer passed the semi and swerved into its lane. The semi driver swerved to avoid an accident and the pup trailer caught snow before being sucked off the road.

The pup trailer was upright when he came to a stop but after about 30 seconds, it slid a little further down the hill and rolled over.

Nobody was injured in the crash.
