      Ya, I was thinking about moving the train out from under the load, but there may be taller cars on either side of them, and they'd still have to move the load to get it away from the tracks.

      The immediate cause was a small incline to the berm on the edge of the tracks and they had all driven their front tires up onto it tipping each forklift back a bit.
      They lifted the load level, right at the limits of safe balance but as they backed up the front tires dropped down, pitching the load forward, which was amplified by the high lift height.
      They either should have adjusted to keep the forks level as they backed up, or just tipped the whole load back as soon as it was up to bring the balance point back into a safe zone.

      Definitely that.

      I love the fact that not only did they drop their isht, but they knocked over a train car too. That's impressive.

      CSB:

      driving the truck with a large 3 axis milling machine on it. It was past truck limit and it would lift the back of truck in the air. I had the shop owner and the heaviest guy in the shop hanging off the back end so I could bounce down to turn. Drove by the safety inspector (owners daughter) she just shook her head at us as we went down the aisle.

      They would had dropped it anyhow once they started downing down that graded gravel bed anyhow.....at least they provided the entertainment of knocking the rail car over and noone is hurt. This is why commercial insurance policies usually start at a million. Will they pay it.....prolly not with that video out there...

      There are just two camera angles in this video, no need to watch all two minutes of it.



      https://dfw.cbslocal.com/2019/10/10/...-crash-dallas/

      According to police, the vehicle was going at a high rate of speed in the northbound lanes in the 500 block of Riverfront. The vehicle went over the center median and flipped multiple times, ejecting the driver. Police say Spence wasn’t wearing a seatbelt.

      According to police, the 29-year-old was taken to the hospital in serious condition and is expected to survive. He remains in the intensive care unit at Methodist Dallas Medical Center.

      LOL, the name of the business that caught it on camera is the "Knockout Sports Bar". http://kosportsbar.com/

      Four things.

      1- Does that kid have a white guitar strap?

      2- Hopefully the truss company that made those roof trusses is still around and using the same software.
      Otherwise they will have to remove the entire end of the roof and redo it since repairs to the existing trusses would be impossible to engineer.

      3-RAM!


      4-

      Glide path for final approach was pretty good. Looks like the wind was at his back for coming into the hanger. (or at least using the flag as a wind sock indicated). Oh wait, you say that was someone's man cave and he wound up on top of the wife's Audi? This wasn't the Town of Beloit's airport?

      If they knew he was trying to park the thing, they'd have only just had to open the garage doors.

      But I think the important question is: did he have a landing clearance?

      I know this seems like hindsight BS, but you really should consider the terrain around your home regarding "out of control" traffic.
      Trees, boulders, armco, etc should be used where you suspect a weakness in your DUI defenses.
      A coworker had some large boulders brought in and places next to the road because idiots kept driving off the road and into his house from that direction.
      Boulders have been moved a bit.., but the house hasn't been hit since.

      Out of curiosity, where would you put the boulders to prevent this one? maybe home owner needs a 30ft NASCAR rated catch fence?

      Some engineer will get out there and increase the heft of the drainage ditch to provide more air. With the proper launch angle, you should be able to get enough clearance to fly completely over the house, thereby avoiding all the insurance hassles and contractor rebuilds to the roof. If minimum speeds aren't maintained, the car will just get hung up in the ditch. Encouraging signs to keep velocity up will motivate the crazies to just lay into the go pedal that much more.

      Raleigh neighbors stunned by wreck that injured 3 teens, left car vertical



      My aunt & cousin were the first to drive up on the accident and call 911. They took this pic.



      https://www.cbs17.com/news/raleigh-n...-car-vertical/

      Officers said they found an underage teen behind the wheel of a car, at one point dangling from utility lines, with two other minor teens as passengers inside.

      Derrow has questions, including what happened leading up to the wreck.

      “That really makes me question what they were doing in the vehicle,” Derrow said. “It sounded like they were going fast based on the screech that we heard right before the impact.”

      The teens were taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the second car was treated for minor injuries at the scene.

      Neighbors took pictures showing first responders at the scene and the car standing vertically — supported by a utility pole wire.

      Gary Antwon Williams also took pictures after seeing the aftermath on the way to work at his radio station.

      “I just knew that it was really bad,” Williams said. “I pinched myself to see if I was sleeping or anything, or was I awoke or what. Is this really happening?”

      Raleigh Police are investigating the crash.

      The fact that it was traveling backwards when it hit the wires is a clue, Cotton.
