That thing landed HARD. Airbags blew the second they touched down. Bye bye steering column.

Those trucks have a known issue with frame-bending on fairly minor ruts and when the body hits the frame stops.


What you posted is waaaay different from that.

He carried way too much speed over the hill. Totaled the truck and I wonder what he did to his back.

Not likely, assuming he had belts on.

Of course, that's a pretty major assumption as common sense looks to be in damn short supply.

I predict back trouble and a nice case of hemorrhoids.

If the insurance company sees that vid:

Denied!

I think an adjuster can look at the vehicle and tell what happened without the video. I'd like to see the A-frames, just to see what that does to them.

I went over a RR crossing way too fast once and hit the stops on the other side. Thankfully, there was no damage, but that isn't a good feeling/sound.

Why the hell would you floor the pedal with a landing ramp that short?

You are in a fricking truck, not a 4-wheeler. You have mass.

Sir Newton just pwned the hell out of you.

Enjoy that nagging back/neck for the rest of your life

What half plausible story could you even offer for that damage under comprehensive?

That thing is probably financed to the hilt too.

I seriously wondered about a compression fracture.


You think alcohol could possibly be involved?

Suddenly the statistic that half of all Americans have zero retirement savings begins to make sense.

You could claim that you took an off ramp too fast, but you're going to have to file an incident report with the police or state and lying on an official document in order to defraud the insurance company is like popping zits with a vice grip.

That or a crushed disk. Didn't Evel Knievel have a similar injury?

It would be easier to identify the times/places where alcohol wasn't involved, I bet.
