Camper trailer flips on I-69, no injuries

A truck sits propped up by the back of the travel trailer Friday, Jan. 22 in the median of I-69 in Kimball Township near the Pine River. A St. Clair deputy at the scene said he did not know anything about the accident and would not confirm that the vehicle was traveling westbound on the highway even though the skid marks implied that.

A camper being pulled by a sport utility vehicle came off the hitch and flipped on Interstate 69 this morning.

The accident happened at about 8:40 a.m. St. Clair County Sheriff Deputy Steve Campau said there were no injuries.

A St. Clair County sheriff deputy at the scene wouldn’t provide information to a Times Herald photographer.

But the photographer said the vehicle appeared to be heading westbound on the highway and had Ontario plates.

Golf clubs and other stuff from the truck and trailer littered the scene.

Also, I'm not the smartest person in St.Clair County, but I think that is a pickup, noy an SUV. I'll look at the pic again to make sure.

According to scanner traffic would have actually been better then this report! LOL

Replying to flowerchild61:
"Campau said the camper flipped at the scene,"

Well where else would it have flipped?

You've got that thinking cap on this morning!

hey if the back end of the truck was propped up by the trailer, how could it have come lose from the truck? cause if it did the truck would not have been connected to the trailer.
