    I hope no one was hurt.

    Also this is why I like extended bumpers, look how much of a hit it took, and how the cab was protected by it. Just think if that extended bumper wasnt there.

    Wink It's as plain as Black & White!

    Interesting. Notice how it took the colors and neutralized them. I think they called that "monochromia" on the "Honeymooners"...way back when!

    Any injuries? What were they responding to? Details...more details!!

    It looks like the E-One Cyclone II chassis held up well. Any other pics from other angles of the truck? Any idea how fast it was going? Hopefully no one was injured.

    This accident happened on the "A" shift and I know the crew who was onboard. The were making a box in the rain and a car passed them going in the same direction, the car then cut into their lane and hit the brakes. The chauffeur had a choice, the car or the pole. He tried to split the difference and hit the pole. They centered the pole right between the frame rails with minor injuries to the Cptain (Shoulder). It happened on MLK Dr. at St. Lo in SE Houston. It is a Cyclone II and the rig was sent to the E-One factory and repaired with a new cab, transmission and other minor things. The cost was approx $186,000.00. It is now back in service with its original Engine Co. (A very busy company for fire duty) and running fine about 18 to 22 times a day.
    Stay low and move it in.

    Be safe.

    And technically, it is not Telephone Pole-1, Engine-0. The same Engine Co. centered another pole at MLK Dr. and Beltfort in their previous 1993 Seagrave a few years back. It is actually:

    Telephone Poles-2, Engine Co. 35-0.

    Thought I would pass that along.
    Stay low and move it in.

    Be safe.

    Station 2 your right about what happened and like anyone that has driven in south park knows. I'm surprized it doesn't happen more often. Pulling to the right is not an option for the district...lol
