wildcardjack: for the vehicle size
Archie Goodwin: [media.cleveland.com image 642x431]Seriously, how does something like that, happen?
Raddamant: Archie Goodwin: [media.cleveland.com image 642x431]Seriously, how does something like that, happen?Too much weight, poor maintenance, and abusive driving. Suspension (probably spring shackle) breaks, truck falls onto tires, tears all sorts of shiat up. I'll bet that truck is totaled. Nothing like a two foot drop landing smack on the tailboard to bend the frame, break welds, twist cargo doors, etc
Archie Goodwin: IIRC the truck was repaired and put back in service.

rnatalie: Many years ago I was in the volunteer fire company in White Marsh, MD. We were getting a bunch of thunderstorms through the area. We had already run on an Automated Alarm to the local Sears store and we were looking at all the lightening thinking, hell we'll get a real fire out of this somewhere.A while later in the summer evening, we were sitting on firehouse porch and one of our members who had gone upstairs early says he smelled smoke up there. We check it out and can't find anything. We had this old 1950's era Mack reserve engine that we were working on so we figure it was just the exhaust getting upstairs.Of course, we sat around for the next hour planning what we would do if the firehouse actually was on fire. Then the guy comes down and says the entire upstairs was full of smoke. We walk about ten feet in front of the building... yep, it's on fire. At least we were planned.
Hoopy Frood: Any company can bring the truck to the fire, but it takes a pro to bring the fire to the truck.

RedRudy: I knew they were a self-serving bunch.
