Looks to me like the roller was on too much of a slope and it tipped over. If you look at where the people are standing; it is kinda steep. the roller was probably top heavy and was moving forward as it rolled over. At least, that my story.

It seems possible that they were loading it back onto the trailer after having smoothed out that blacktop. Somehow they were too far to the left side and the whole thing shifted and tipped over off the trailer.

The trailer is moved and then the picture is taken.

I had thought the same but didn't see the truck or trailer no where. So then when Chief said something about the slope i had to go with that i didn't even notice there was a slope at the time. Shows how much i paid attention:smiles:

loading it

That's the only thing that makes any sense. One thing that road rollers are not,is top heavy. I don't see enough slope there to roll that machine over.
