I have to admit...I've seen a few accidents in my lifetime but this one was unusual and so damn funny I almost lost it...

On Monday morning I was headed to Southern Oregon for a few days to check on my construction projects and complete some technical work for a few next year.

As our engineering intern and I were headed out on the freeway in stop and go traffic, we came upon a Wide Load...a goose neck flatbed with a large excavator on it. The rear safety/pilot car was a Chrysler mini-van.

Traffic was stop and go, with our lane moving a bit faster than the lane on the right. Just as we were pulling up next to the pilot car, traffic opened up a bit in his lane and the truck moved forward, speeding up a little bit before coming to a stop.

However, the pilot car driver, who had also accelerated, failed to notice the big rig had stopped and...yup, you guessed it...


The pilot car smacked his own wide load....:LOL::LOL::LOL:

OH hell, there goes his Million dollar insurance policy
I have not hit a load YET & hope that i never do
the trucking companies tend to fire you fast for damaging a load, not quite as fast if you only bump the truck
Getting a load again through that trucking company will be difficult & every other pilot car driver will know who it was & how it happened real fast

Wow, that is pretty bad lol, can't say I've ever seen that or heard of it happening with any of our trucks. Guess I can see the irony there.

I can certainly see how that could happen; I mean heavy-haulers have such a short stopping distance compared to a mini-van :LOL:
