:Eeek: Looks like he didn't live to tell the tale? :whatthe:

Thankfully John, he did....................

At approximately 3 PM, Tuesday, July 2, a 2008 Dodge Ram 2500, pulling a new travel trailer, hit the corner of the Texas State Bank Drive-In on Tenaha Street, causing the complete awning to come to the ground. Luckily, the driver of the Dodge, Mickey Miller, of Garrison and his 10 year old son were able to exit their vehicle uninjured.
According to Miller he was circling the bank to park on the other side when the corner of his travel trailer caught the corner of the bank awning. Next thing he heard was a rumble as the awning started falling against his driver's side door. Somehow he was able to unbuckle the seat beat and exit the other side of his truck as it was falling.

We had a store man in France that went to the store on day in a High Roof VW transporter instead of his Astra Van. He drove straight through barrier and took the fiberglass roof off. Claimed he never knew about the barrier.

If my memory serves me right, you are required to display a height indicator in the cab if over 3 metres. It surprises me how many trucks I drive which don't. Not a good thing to have to guess.
