    Default Won't see this on a Red rig...

    How about this for HME/Central and yellow rigs. And not the first to do this.

    Oh Ouch! That hurts my eyes (is it the yellow or the broken truck? I can't quite tell )!

    Rear body frame broke apart. Too expensive to fix, so it is going to salvage.

    How old is this rig? It appears to may have been overloaded its entire life.

    Being yellow had nothing to do with this.

    That is bad break. Plus the rear ended one is bad also. Seen them before. People just don't pay attention to driving now days. Too many things going on in the vehicle.

    I think it was caused by a ladder company chauffeur on overtime who usually drives a tillered aerial... it is rumored that he told the crew that real trucks bend in the middle...
