  2. #1. A crash a few years back similar to that, dad and kid crushed by a mixer.
    #6. Do not attempt if you are not named Gator McCluskey.

    1. #1 was damn lucky he wasn't a second ahead with the guardrail preventing him from escaping off the road. He would be dead.
      Someone was going the wrong way on a one way road.

    2. Maybe. Brit, left hand drive. Cement mixer likely too fast for hard turn and his load shifted.
      A buddy who used to work at local major airport(YYZ), said they'd have a half-full fuel tanker do that about once a month, when he worked there about a decade ago.

  3. #9 actually happened to me after an over night weather ice event, but I slid all the way down my 400' driveway bouncing off the curbs all the way down. At the bottom of the driveway were 3 or 4 cars that could not make the hill. I aimed for the right back wheel of one and stuck my feet out to prevent going under it. I hit it hard enough to move it sideways a bit and freaked out the driver when I stood up. I went back up to the house in the snow through the woods.

    1. Now have that happen on a tractor.
      With chains.
      With filled tires.
      From pretty much a standstill.

    2. Wisco-
      I once slid backwards on ice about 250' in a loaded log truck after I couldn't make it up the hill I was pulling. The only thing that kept me from sliding off the road and into a creek 100' below was my ability to gently slide parallel into an 8" asphalt berm on the edge of the pavement. That was also what slowed me down, as my wheels were locked up in complete slide mode.

      My ass never once puckered. My brain was too busy staying out of the creek to send it the 'pucker' signal.

      This was back before Kenworths had front axles with brakes. That's what saved me. If the front brakes had been locked up in a slide I couldn't have steered into the berm and I'd have gone over the edge for sure.

  5. I still get a good chortle from #3, even after seeing it a Phil's place first. Nothing like learning a good lesson the hard way.

    1. The expression "Let Sleeping Dogs Lie" applies to cats too, apparently.

    1. I think his coat got caught up in the chain.

    2. he was taking his jacket off and it tangled in the front wheel.

    3. The coat got caught in the front wheel. The chain is on the right side and wouldn't have caused an OTB.

    4. His coat got caught in the front wheel, locking it and flipping him over the bars. Think of all the time he saved by not stopping.

  8. #7 I'm not sure just how that could happen, but if it did - how would anyone ever get out of the car?

    1. I don't think they did. As the brake lights are on, there must be someone in there. I hope they're REALLY skinny, and made it out OK. But... probably not.

      But think of this: When they went to fill in the hole, did they know there was a car in there? If not, they probably just dumped in fill & paved over the top.

  9. Sink hole under a concrete parking lot. Taillights are on all the way down. Shoot out the rear window and swim.

  10. #7.... and that, my friends, is why we don't leave babies and puppies alone in the car!
