Sometimes things simply go wrong. Such was the case with this tanker loaded with creosote. It rolled on its side into the median in January, but got squared away thanks to some skillful maneuvering by the folks of Midwest Truck Inc. The recovery team from Scott City, Missouri righted the fully-loaded truck — all 79,200 lbs. of it — without a great deal of drama but with plenty of skill.
