Sweet Jesus! crzy

Reminds me of a story from when my dad was a kid. There was a truck in front of them with steel pipes on it and the load got loose, the pipes went through the car and shredded the camper they were towing. They were extremely lucky nobody was killed.

This is a sad story, a conduit mounted to the ceiling of the tunnel fell down and crashed through the cab. The driver was able to pull over and stop his rig before passing away. Terrible tragedy.

I saw that on the news today. Where are you at Zee0Six. We must be close.

I try to stay away from log trucks. They creep me out.

Hope the guy makes it.

Not sure why they would allow such a hangover length without other structure. Might have helped a bit...

Iíve seen logs hanging way back on the trucks here and they are supposed to have a warning flag or marker attached. I donít know if there is a maximum length law or not. That driver is very lucky if he survives which it seems he may. Iím guessing he ducked. ďThere but for the grace of God go I.Ē

The traffic is bad enough in the area since they have been doing construction there for 20 plus years now. Iím guessing it backed up down to the county line and beyond.

Looks like the 2nd driver reacted to just pull over to the left to allow enough space so the logs did not crush him. His front tires are to the left of the lane markers while the lead truck is properly in lane.Cause? Distracted driving, failed brakes, asleep at the wheel, other?

Reminds me of a story when I was young. I was at a keg party and a friend offered me a ride home. I declined because he was a little too drunk. Found out the next day that he had hit a fence and the top of a chain link fence had gone right through the passenger seat. Someone was looking out for me that night.

I grew up in the pine forests of the Gulf Coast. Logging is a huge industry there. Seems as if youíd read a story like this once or twice a year. Most people donít follow closely, but then heavy morning fog would be the final straw.
