    looks like left truck stopping but no brake lights. would not like to have been one of those drivers. probably should have chains & dogs to restrain, if not possible to lay load flat on side.

    Never seen rolls or spools carried on their sides; only the periphery. Material handling equipment partly due, loaded by cranes/ forklifts equipped with a spike, of course standing is how the factories use them. Can't even recall seeing a flat un-coiler; maybe for wire but presses need sheet fed flat.
    Who knows what happened to tie-downs. Would have been at least 2 or 3 through the middle tending flat [least effective] 1 each tending forward and to the rear. Some use lever binders, others ratcheting and specified load chain. Is it possible tractor-trailer left a depot unsecured, or just the tie-downs worked loose?

    Looks to me like maybe, after tying down the load, the driver failed to pat it with one hand and say: "Yup, that'll hold."

    You gotta do that!

    A second look reveals that both trucks look like they are carrying the same load and the left oneshows no restraints like the right. maybe just left warehouse as cant see any clear traffic lanes . Wouldn't like to be in any car/vehicle in place of the right one or any vehicle behind the left one if starting up an incline.
    Here, it is the drivers responsibility to check the load: including its weight & bet same where that accident occurred.scarey how an oversight can cause havic/death.

    Those rolls are not light either. The public is lucky the roll got jammed between the two trucks. Could you imagine what would happen if the roll decided to roll down a busy side walk.

    Back in the late 60s a roll came off the freeway, rolled down the embankment and into a house. Destroyed the concrete porch and pillars and stopped in the house. This was a half block from my tech school in Los Angeles. I usually see them chained through from side to side by 3 chains but also over the top by 2 chains, how it should be done. Chp will stop them otherwise.

    That is the accepted way of securement but also the rolls are usually set in coil chocks these are nothing more than a strip of flat bar folded on each end to form a triangle the coils are set on top of them 2 per coil in lew of these chocks many drivers will chain down their dunnage for and aft of the coils If a driver has neither chocks or dunnage the shipping company may elect to nail triangle shaped blocks to the floor of the trailer. I don't know all of the DOT regs any more but back in the day no shipper wold load coils on a flatbed trailer if the trailer or the truck was not equipped with either a bulkhead on the trailer or a headache rack on the tractor. If they did and the driver got a ticket for not having one the shipper was liable for the ticket. But that was back in the day.
    Looking at the gif in full screen I couldn't see any straps or chains on the 2 rolls on the left rig. Also as noted I did not see any brake lights There is one other thing I noted all of the trucks passing on the other side were cabovers meaning this happened either in Europe, The East or in the Middle East . One note of Identifier was the refrigerated ZIM trailer ZIM transportation and shipping started in 1945 in Israel They used to be mostly a passenger liner service but became a cargo shipper in the 1960's Now operate ships all over the world but their refrigerated line is mostly in Europe and the Upper Middle east.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done
