    Not my vehicle. I think the guy was coming through the gate and it either swung closed slightly or he misjudged.

    Looks like the big truck with push bars lost that one. Hope no one was injured.

    i don't see any blood stains so i'm guessin somebody used up their yearly quota of guardian angels.

    i'm just tryin to guess how bad that would have been if it had been a car instead of a truck.

    looks like the gate would have simply glanced off the fender had that brush-guard not been on the bumper.

    I saw these photos and story a few months ago...

    Story was that the gate was blended into the brush, he didn't see that it was sticking out a little AND aimed at his truck. *I THINK that there might've been a reason for him to be further left than normal, too, when going through the gate. Not sure.

    Driver was certainly glad that he got stopped when he did. The gate's widening profile are what stopped the truck, too, not brakes.

    2 questions.

    1) how fast was the driver going to bury the pole that far into the truck?

    2) if he was driving along at a normal pace for that type of terrain and area then why didn't he realize from all the weird grinding noise and odd vibration that something was definitely wrong and stop immediately? i'm assuming there were odd grinding noise and a weird vibration of feeling to the vehicle anyway, i don't know how a 3-4 inch pipe could make it's way through a vehicle and not cause at least those 2 issues.

    Scroll to the bottom. This does not take into account reaction time.:wavey:

    Even if he was only doing 10mph he would travel 4ft after he applied the brakes. He most likely wouldnt even had enough time to react and apply the brakes.
