    Brutal. What was it, Komatsu? Lot of buffing & duct tape needed on that one.

    Looks like about 15'4 clearance and he nailed it about 2 feet up. How the hell do you not realize you're 4 feet over legal height?

    Comments section calling it a dump truck and blaming dump truck drivers and foreigners.

    Wow and that was a small one!
    Probably had it on a skateboard.

    If it was a dump truck it was probably on a tilt deck. Could have put it in the dump box for all we know.
     
    OLDSKOOLERnWV and Chinatown Thank this.

    I'd say the vast majority of drivers around that area are foreign. Stupidity doesn't see race though as we all know.

    He must've been moving when he hit that too, decided it'd fit one way or the other.

    Was a dump truck, pulling pintle hitch trailer with beaver tails.
    Bucket sheared off, bounced around and punched a hole in another trucks fuel tank. Took out an SUV also.
