Shackelford was about fo climb into the sleeping compartment of the cab when Fisher felt the trailer hit. the '.guard ;-.rail. He warned. "Shack" to "hang, on" because he * couldn't control the tractor. "Shack's" navy training came in handy at'this point and he was able to ride out the crash holding his breath.

The trailer shown above toppled off the bridge first, pulling the tractor with it in an upside- down position. .The two men riding in the cab were thrown through the large windshields to the soft, spongy ground below as the cab turned over.
