13' Scamp in traffic accident - Kentucky (not our Scamp)

Today, 8/4, westbound on I-24 near Fort Campbell exit. We were travelling eastbound and only had a quick view.
It appeared as if trailer and tow vehicle had become separated and were sitting in swale on side of road.. Both upright. Car had damage the length of driver's side. Scamp body looked as if possibly been detached from frame, couldn't confirm that though.
Long traffic jam-up behind accident on roadway. Emergency vehicles in attendance. Hope everyone safe and sound.

Hi: Phil 4500... Wb. 401 today took 2& 1/2 hrs to cross Metro Toronto. That's after we detoured an RV & towed vehicle fire. Just lucky to get off at Brighton exit and use #2 hwy west to Colborne and north to The Big Apple.

That was ours! We had a nice trip to Grand Haven, the kids love camping right next to / on the beach.

And a bonus was meeting Floyd when we stopped in Morris, IL for supper. Thanks for introducing yourself, Floyd!

Just spotted Casita, I believe they're 17 footers? Right here at 4 Mile Creek State Park, Porter, NY on Lake Ontario.

Saw a wide-body Burro pulled by a silver SUV on highway 260 in Pinetop, AZ this afternoon. First one I've seen in person, but headed the other way, so no chance for a close-up look.

Crossed paths with a Scamp 16 about 2pm today that was west bound on CA 76 right around Lake Henshaw towed by a white and brown Ford full sized P/U. We were heading home with the Casita and waved but didn't see if they did because of the sun on their windshield.
