I can just imagine, "AAAAAAIIIIIIIIEEEEEE!" Then, "Okay, okay. I'm not going in the water. Okay." Then, WHOOSH. "Oh, son of a...."

That explains why emergency services woke me up at about 2:30 this morning as they sped past my house, sirens blaring, and lights shining.  A good time was had by all.  There are times I love living where I live.

The article referred to an "empty ups truck" and I read it as being a euphemism for upside-down, like oh that car just done flipped empty-ups.

The crane was hooked up to the trailer to slowly pull it out and then the cab separated from it, falling back into the water.

Did they expect the the trailer and kingpin to fully support the dangling weight of the cab as they lifted? What did they think was going to happen?

authorities say it caught fire after it plunged over a bridge and into the Grand Calumet River below.

How did it catch on fire after going into the water?

Or, in a fit of "edit your text for clarity," what was in the empty trailer that caused it to catch fire?

Glad the driver is ok. Cuz damn, that's an impressive wreck.

I can't even imagine doing that. Last time I tried to go westbound through northwest Indiana it took so long I think I qualified for residency, yet here's this guy who must have been going in excess of at least ten miles per hour.

And son, that's why you'll inherit the strongest truck in all of England.

Great Googly Moogly how in the hell did he manage that?    I hope he had a spare pair of uniform pants and a fresh pairs of briefs inthe cab cause he needed them after that.    Assuming they did no go up in smoke.

I went to school in view of the Lewis and Clark viaduct in KC. Twice we got to watch truck-hanging-off-bridge events at recess. One of them emptied a load of cattle. I didn't see the accidents happen, but twice I saw cars hiat the guardrail, go airborne, and land back on the bridge. That curve has been redesigned since.

My new ups lady was hired on for holiday help and pulled in the driveway the other day, taking out my land line. She was very upset, and also quite pretty. Fortunately, I canceled my land line service after buying the house, and I gave her my number if she had problems with the boss. Nowhere near as harrowing as the article, but she thought she was gonna be fired, and she hasn't been yet.
