Improperly loaded.  Without other vehicles closer to the trailer's axles, the driver should have moved the loaded vehicle rearward and placed it closer to the axles.  That would have both reduced its center of gravity and put it where the weight had two points of contact instead of just the hitch-point on the front of the trailer.

Nice tackle from behind of that truck in front of it. Never seen that before. Kinda caught the back and flipped it.

At least he strapped that truck on the carrier properly.  2 flips and it held tight to the trailer.

If I'm not mistaken, the speed limit there is 70 mph/113 kmh and it looks like he's using all of it

Yup.  Loaded way too high.  And for his mistake, now he's got to pay for damages to an H1 (which are still stupid expensive even today), and buy a new hotshot truck/trailer.

What I noticed was there was already a ton of debris in the fast lane before the car carrier started tipping, is there something wrong with the road there that exacerbated the poor load location?

You mean his insurance has to do that? I mean maybe his auto insurance might not carry the load part but that should be covered by professional liability insurance.

That would have been really fun if he had been in the outside lane.

First shalt thou load the Holy Hummer to Antioch.
Then shalt thou load it at position three over the axles.
Not more front, not more back.
Three shall be the location where thou shalt load it, and the number of the position shall be three.
Position four shalt thou not load, neither load at space one or two.
Five is right out, unless unholy SmartCars are thy burden.
Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then thou thy Holy Hummer shalt be delivered upon thy expense paying tiny wiener douchecanoe of Antioch.

He might not have to pay ALL of it, but his insurance is not going to be happy, and there's no way he won't lose a significant amount of money getting his rig back in operation.

You misunderstood what was happening the way I did at first. The light-colored truck is the truck that was towing the trailer. What you thought was the cab of a big truck was the vehicle strapped down at the front of the trailer.

I don't think a truck that small should be towing a trailer that large, but that's just one of many problems here.

That's a bingo.  I saw that a couple days ago and figured about the same thing.  Around 20% of the load should be on the tongue with a 5th wheel.  My guess is he loaded them LIFO without regard to weight distribution and was too lazy to move the load back, even when that heavy vehicle was the last one left on the trailer.  But even unbalanced and topheavy he still had to drive like an idiot to tip it.  If he'd just gone slow around corners, he probably would have made it.

You're assuming that a hotshotter has the proper insurance.  One of the main reasons that hotshotting exists is because the drivers can use non-CDL light trucks through Class 3 in some cases, and so long as they manage to avoid being obviously overloaded they may avoid the scrutiny of commercial enforcement patrols.  It's possible the guy has only his regular private auto insurance for his truck.  It would not surprise me if the owner of the load is going to have to sue him to recover damages, becaue if he does lack proper coverage, his insurance may well try to get out of it because of this being a clearly commercial setup without adequate coverage.

It's all about axle weight, GVWR, and GCWR.  The '05 Ram 3500 when properly has a payload capacity of over 5000lb and a GCWR of 23000lb. If he hits the scales to find out what his truck and his trailer individually weigh he might well be able to haul that trailer and three lightweight cars, or two moderately heavy cars/trucks/SUVs with that setup.  It may still not be the best idea, but if it's loaded right then even a Class 3 "one ton" light truck can move a lot of mass safely.

Obviously this was not safely.

I don't get the person filming. They see it tipping and they... slow down a bit? I'd be activating the ABS at that point. Once it tips, some of it could have insta-stopped and given the driver a very bad day.

No. People in San Antonio like to disregard the signs that tell you to take the turn at a lower speed.
San Antonio. Damn speed freaks.  To the point that Down town they've had to put flashing lights telling you to take the curve at a slower speed. People don't.

It's called the daily fail because it fails to load before I get pissed off and hit the back button to avoid a seizure.

No part of it will insta-stop.  Once it's all metal on the roadway it has less friction relative to the surface than the tires had.  It will literally grind to a halt over distance as the kinetic energy is bled-off as heat and abrasion.

If it's not a white rectangular sign then it's not a speed limit sign.  Specifically if it's a yellow diamond possibly with a yellow rectangle below it, it's a suggested speed for the tallest and most tip-prone of regular road-going vehicles, ie, tractor-trailers.  The sign is simply a notification of a potential hazard or condition, same as a sign with a percent-grade or "bump" or notification that a lane merger is ahead.

It also serves to notify drivers that can go fast that other traffic on that ramp might not be going fast, ie, pay attention as you round that ramp so you don't come up unexpectedly upon slower moving traffic.

I was thinking that if you throw metal beams at the ground hard enough they could dig in and turn into poles. Also pretty sure the entire side of a truck grinding against the ground is a better brake than my ABS.

ABS measures wheelspin to avoid letting a wheel lock up so that the rubber tires are at their most effective.  Metal on concrete has far less friction than tire on concrete.
