What would happen if you dropped a A-Frame ladder off a truck on the interstate then a car ran over it?

How bad would the damage be? Would there be a mass accident pile up?

Best Answer:

No Summertime: Could be, It all depends. If it gets up into a wheel arch it could rip out brake lines so no brakes.

Other answer:

No Summertime:
There could be significant damage. If a pile up happens depends on who is behind the truck that drops the ladder.
I would just run over the ladder (unless I was sure there was no one next to me, which is rare on a freeway). If you slam on the brakes, you're going to get rear-ended anyway.

You would get a ticket for an insecure load and you and your insurance are up for the damage caused.
