So, here goes.
I don't have any pictures from the scene, no camera handy. Some were taken though, by a passerby using his phone. They are probably on Facebook somewhere with the heading - "Can you believe a family of 6 walked away from this unhurt?!" Picture, if you will, our truck lying on the driver's side with the hood against the guardrail. The camper trailer was lying on its side as well, across the highway, which was two lanes wide. There were several close calls as cars came up and almost drove straight into it, until we turned our headlights back on. (Someone helping us had turned off the engine which was still running and thought the lights would blind motorists, so turned them off. Bad idea.) We got some flares going after that but it was the scariest part for the kids as we were sitting on the grass watching that! One stopped on a dime in front of it and another went past it in the grass at the last second! I prayed sooo loud for those few moments!
After everything was righted and towed they swept up all of our belongings from the road, along with the glass and the rearview mirror and extenders from the driver's side, which had been sheared off. They put it all into the cover from the propane tanks. (The tanks were tossed into the median in case they were leaking). This is what you could see on the highway 18 hours later:
We found a broken plate, which was in the back of the truck with some cupcakes on it, a tomatillo, and a wad of silly bands (of course!)
Because of God's grace none of the items in the back of the truck walloped DS in the head, not even a cupcake. We had the plate, some apples and other stuff from a farmer's market, a case of water and a stroller in there.
When we came to a stop he said, "Mom, the window's broken."
Yup. Lots of things are broken.
But no one is hurt.
None of that glass hurt him and he had no road rash.
This is what that bottom side looked like:
All in all, the truck looks good, and the roof didn't crush. It makes a good argument for getting another truck instead of a minivan, since it held up so well in this. It kept us all safe.
But the camper did flop to the other side, which now looks like this:
I few closing thoughts. First, a reminder of what all this looked like last month:
