That brings up a point that should be obvious: Leave plenty of room between your coach and any truck or trailer, but especially dump trucks and equipment flatbeds. You can't avoid flying rocks from the other lanes, but you can control the spacing ahead to lower your risk.
I was driving my car on a downtown freeway once, a safe distance behind a fire truck (no lights or siren) when an axe fell from the back and went spinning down the road in front of me! It made it to the shoulder as I passed. The car behind me saw it and stopped to pick it up.
