Slick driving conditions due to snow, ice, and freezing rain is a common cause for overturned trucks.
Transporting oil and gas or mining and moving rock requires trucks and lots of them traveling long distances. Trucks also supply needed equipment, water, and any number of necessary supplies to make field operations run smoothly. Without skilled truckers, the oil, gas, and mining industries might as well pack up and go home. Skilled is emphasized because the vast majority of drivers powering the big rigs are about as far removed from the regular car driver as an air force pilot is from a kite flyer. But, there are also a few among the vast army of professionals who are not as well trained or should just plain know better. That is where the epic fail photographs come into play of trucks stuck in impossible angles either on or off the road.
