I used to work at a landfill that had two of those mishaps in six months.

Launched one driver halfway through the windshield and cracked his sternum. He retired very shortly afterward.

The other guy had his seatbelt on, but got fired for having porno mags all over the inside of his cab at the time of the crash.

Holy Shit! What are the odds those folks on the bridge survived?

Their part of the crash looked very violent.

LOL...Watch the person on the left inside the walkway. He sees the truck, stops and just stands there...Do these people not understand the concept of "run the other way" ?

Probably just in complete disbelief at what they were seeing.   Wonder if the fall was slowed by being within the collapsing bridge at all.

How the hell does the truck driver NOT NOTICE the box up like that?



My Dad had a dirt business when I was a kid, you could FEEL the truck frame flexing when the box was up and you had to spread what you were hauling.

Plus the whole truck rocks side to side when the bed is up.

you just reminded me

my buddy works for an excavating company.  long story short the owner was hauling a new excavator back to their shop and forgot to lower the arm all the way.  ended up running into an overpass with it.

"Two people were injured, but everyone survived." I'll bet they were fucked up bad.

Not bad for a dump truck doing 50mph to smash into a bridge 2ft away from ya, though...

It looked like the two people on the right were hit almost dead on by the box.

Stopping and staring was not the right call

 


Your mind locks up. You think "That cant be real" then your brain just stops thinking and starts pumping adrenaline.

Lots of people on the ground ran in to help right off, motorists not so much but that was kind of cool.



That would be an "OH FUCK" moment to be on that bridge and see the boom coming.

Someone didn't disengage their PTO shaft.
