You know your having a bad day when...

Since we're all about "towing things" on the forum, I thought I'd share this local accident with everyone. While it's sad for the driver, you have to chuckle at the aftermath. Always know and keep the height of your rig in mind.

"new cars" no less.

I think that one hanging over the side is a total.

Looks like it went through a meat grinder.

Must have been either a PU or a SUV since it looks like the two on top in the front didn't get damaged.
