And no, this isn't about the state of our country although it too is scary...

Kenny has a auto shop not far from mine but he does custom builds etc. Swamp buggies/old bodies put on newer chassis, great fab guy.

He built souped up 4x4, square body Blazer for a customer,  lifted with BIG  tires 4k rpm converter.

While slowly loading on his trailer to deliver,  Kenny was standing on tongue guiding his helper who was inching the beast over the trailer fenders as too wide.

Something happened and the Blazer lunged fwd smashing Kenny against the pickup.

I have seen the video from his house security cam. Omg!

By the grace of God he is alive.

This pic is not for the weak.

Had a buddy killed years ago when an impatient motorist rear ended a trailer that he was between it and tow vehicle, hope for a speedy and full recovery, gotta think safety it may have been the hi stall converter engaged after gunning it to go over the fenders, one has to always think of never placing yourself in a position if things go bad

Totally understandable given the situation.   His upper body is alright?  

Dunno. 

I have the video  but choose not to post it.

It terrifies me and I dont scare easy

He was pinned for at least a full minute till driver got truck to reverse as rear truck tires had travelled completely in front of trailer fenders.

And with the hi stall converter when tires engaged it

spun.

Whew that hurts i bet.  Blessed his main artery wasnt cut.  Gonna leave a scar but better than being dead.  Imagine him guys emotional state if he would of.killed him?

 

Fwiw i always assume the worse is going to happen.  So stand aside always basically
