Katy Man Loose Trailer Accident FM 2917 Brazoria County, TX

To be a bit frank here, how does someone not realize that their hitch doesn't fit on their truck? Perhaps more importantly, who drives despite this issue? Those are pretty much the most likely scenarios here. In my experience, something like this happens because someone is too irresponsible to make sure their equipment works or they're so reckless that they risk it instead of addressing the issue. Now, is it possible the driver somehow had no way of knowing about this issue? Perhaps. It's possible some sort of manufacturing issue or inaccurate manuals led the driver to believe there would be no problem. More likely, however, is that continued investigations would show that someone needs to take responsibility for a pretty egregious oversight.
