School bus rollover

What would an RV rollover look like? This is why I choose a school bus. Safety!

you'd need a leaf blower to clean up the mess if that had been a standard MH

A quick google search later......


Many school bus rollover photos show buses in some degree of intact-ness. Often many windows don't appear to be broken.



Many RV rollover photos show piles of rubble, and/or stuff scattered everywhere.

Day-yum! I'd like to know how, with the disproportionate masses involved, a P/U could flip over a 14-window.
Think we'll be seeing it in the auctions soon?
Some 100 mph tape and mondo Bondo, it'll be just fine...

Likely, but how hard was he hauling hienie upon impact?!!
Take a bullet and poke somebody with it, all you'll do is annoy them.
But chamber it and drop the hammer on the same hypothical somebody, and there will be a substantial change in the bullet's effect...

it doesnt take much to "PIT" style a bus.. its happened more than once with someone entering a freewauy ramp even.. going the same direction and they hit the bus at the rear and start the tires in a slide... once the bus is getting mostly sideways it doesnt take much to "trip" it.. on a 2 lane road its probably going in the ditch..
