is there an article somewhere attached to these pics???
i just don't get how the guardrail was busted on the OTHER side.
that's one insanely lucky man. well.. lucky being figurative. if he really was lucky he wouldn't have gotten in a wreck in the first place i suppose.

Don't get much closer than that. I would be crapping silly string for the rest of my life after that one.

Yes, we've got to hear the story on that one? Where did the photos come from (besides the link address)?

the truck struck the concrete barrier for some reason (diabetic coma, uma therman ******* him, use your imagination). he brushed along a few of them then the final one before the metal guard rail leaned over, allowing the truck to ride up on the metal rail (the road's rail - not the other smaller rail over the entrenched culvert).

you can see the gradual progression of the lean of the concrete barriers



the truck then proceeded to grind the rail much like a skateboarder. you can see some damage to the tops of the metal railing.

after a few dozen feet, the truck finally struck one of the wood poles. (the right-most pole in this pic)


this caused the truck to go into a flat spin (much like mavrick and goose) down the embankment. you can also see the debris trail from the rail to the truck and what looks like disturbed dirt in the above pic.

Holy crap. As a medic that is an accident I would not have wanted to see. Watch that first step out the passenger side, it is a long one.
