Not sure it's wire on that spool. Could be just plastic pipe...
Somebody missed the load appraisal, that coil looks a bigger diameter than usual, but so much to interfere at a bridge or doorway. . . ?
...we'll learn more by wandering than searching...
Wouldn't the load have been much better if the spool was rested on the side over a wide area versus the two edges of the spool? I can't tell from the photo if it would be way oversized widthwise to do so. It definately looks though that it was loaded forward of all the axles. Over the axles is where it should have been located!
Real thin gauge sheet metal coils usually arrive in various widths depending on the user's specifications our sheet metal coils for the C purlin machine would arrive from the mill then since we did not have a slitter and a re coil machine we sent them out to be sliced to which ever width was required for the size purlin run we were doing we would often have several sluff coils of under 2" sometimes as narrow as 1/2" but mostly we tried to calculate a run of the next wider or narrower c purlins or a combination of widths when the coils were sliced to prevent this. There is not a lot of call for a 1000 meter long strip of 12 or 13 mm wide 2mm thick material.
Never try to tell me it can't be done

Just happened today in Central Ohio. Amazing there was just minor injuries.
As with most news videos, the link does not have much information. ODOT (Ohio Department Of Transportation) posted the photos.

In the trucking industry this is known as hauling suicide because a roll usually comes through the cab in the event of a quick stop. Most flat-bedders haul the rolls turned 90º to prevent this. I hauled suicide once (my first time - didn't know any better) and I used every chain and strap that I had onboard and drove slow and carefully the entire way. Going into the mill to get them was a memorable experience - most of you've never heard anything like a couple of 16" carbon arc rods going into the pot to melt a batch of steel.
In that picture the rear axles have a 10' 4" spread between them so the rear axle set can carry more weight than the front axles (which are close together), because there's a span between the two rear axles.

If you can't make it precise make it adjustable.
