How NOT to drive a dump truck.

Can't believe there are no threads about the traffic chaos that was Highway 1 this afternoon:

Truck bucket hits Gaglardi overpass - News Hour - Videos | Global BC

I drove by (well, crawled by) not long after it happened - the dumper was fully wedged under the overpass, and torn fully off the truck; he must have hit it at full highway speed. The rest of the truck was up balancing on the jersey barrier along the right shoulder, a good 100' further down the road. Musta been quite the BOOM when it hit!

I'd put $20 on the driver having a cell phone pinned to his ear and not paying attention.

Good guess, Sherlock.

He must have been going full speed, to tear it right off the frame like that.

Box down, PTO out, leave site. How fucking hard can it be?

Even if he forgot, what, the guy never checks his mirrors?

Sadly, the most he'll get is a traffic violation and insurance premium increase (or the company he works for). Then we all get the pleasure of being around him on a daily basis again.

Oh joy.

Happened with a garbage truck in Coquitlam. The pedestrian overpass collapsed and the driver died.

Then again in Port Moody.

After the Coquitlam incident I got paranoid driving under overpasses and constantly check that my box is down, even though I know the PTO's out. My box height is pretty close to the legal limit so it's a real concern, especially on newly paved roads and going between N. and W.Van, under the Lionsgate on/offramp.

Power take-off - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In the case of most HD trucks, it connects the transmission to a hydraulic pump. When the PTO is in, pump fuctions, PTO out, no pump. The pump controls and number of hydraulic attachments beit rams, outriggers, winches, etc.. It's common practice to disengage the PTO when attachments aren't in use, for safety reasons (so as not to be able to use attachments while driving) and cause if you're driving with the PTO in, it gets hot since you're at a high rpm, so it's spinning faster.

There was a pedestrian overpass in Coquitlam that collapsed. The driver of the truck got squashed.

those nvan/wvan overpasses suck. i remember years ago always seeing semi's get stuck, and having backup. I believed that the measurement they had posted was wrong, because it happened once or twice every month, in that exact same spot.

Was a garbage truck driving with his forks up... pulled the overpass down on top of himself.

I dont even get how some truck drivers are so oblivious to their truck. The truck drives weird with the box up higher than 1/2" off of the frame
