Pictured is what was once a "nice" Ford crew cab. We all make mistakes, but you'd remember this one for a long time.
This truck was damaged beyond repair. Not only was the cab and box destroyed, the impact bent the frame.
This is the stump of the tree that fell on the truck. More than half of its diameter was first removed in an unsuccessful attempt to get the tree's weight to shift in the direction the faller wanted the tree to go.
The dollar bill on this stump shows how small the back cut was before the tree started falling backwards. It also shows the face cut from another angle.
This perspective shows just how close the truck was parked to the base of the tree that got it. Judging from the photo, it looks like it may have been in range of a number of other trees that were cut on the same site.
As luck would have it, the owner of the truck was the same fellow who fell the tree on it. If a destroyed truck was not enough, this accident even ruined his new polished aluminum tool box..
This truck was decked out. It was not some "crummy" work truck. When the photos were taken this was a nearly new lifted crew cab with aluminum wheels, Warn winch, and all the goodies -- the pride of any timber faller.
Some pictures are worth a
It was not a good day for this gentleman. Fortunately no one was in the
truck at the time it was smashed.
