Another dangerous logging truck trailer comes loose...Questions must be asked.

Note:  Virginia makes it very difficult to get these police reports it's like they protect these farmers and logging companies.

All Logging companies like this by - pass any Federal Safety Laws...It's like "Sanctuary Cities"    These trailers are Sancturary Trailers.

Why did the King Pin fail?  Why Why and Why?

Why did the trailer come off the trailer?

They never answer my questions:

No inspectins and it is clearly a king pin failure!
