I've seen this before and each time it makes me sick to my stomach. The biggest thing I'd like to know is if the driver and any passengers walked away from it.

I was wondering the same. Looks like it came down right on the drivers side pretty hard.

Seen the video before. Typical bigshot trying to look cool cruising through the lot like the 5'er is no big deal!

At the time when this happened there was a news article with pictures. The roof came down and shaved the side of the truck! It didn't come down completely on the trucks roof, but did pretty much total the truck. IIRC the driver/passenger were unharmed.

Thanks for the link. The front shots of the truck still look awful, but a whole lot better than the other view.

Does anyone have a news article link or anything?

I remember seeing that on the news and on funniest home videos a few years ago. They reported no one was hurt. But I bet the pocket book was in pain.
