It looks as if the trailer was lifted for extra ground clearance and her car missed the rear bumper? I am really surprised that the hitch stayed together. That is impressive. My guess is that the trailer is totalled and the truck is moderately damaged underneath. Though maybe it is OK. The car driver is lucky the propane line didn’t rupture. Or the holding tanks....

From the article, the trailer had come to a dead stop in the fast lane because of a brake problem.  Maybe they had no choice, but that was surely an accident waiting to happen.

All it takes is for a stick or tire carcass to fly up and jerk the breakaway lanyard free from the switch. You aren't going to move very far with four locked brakes on the trailer. It's a great practice to keep the lanyard (and also the main wire harness) bungeed up and away from any possible road debris, as much as possible.
