    This happened today, truck was headed north on transit with full load of salt. Truck ran over an area that was just "repaired" by Erie county water you can see the rest. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ATMrZeyGX3Y

    honestly the other side did not look bad either, the wing took alot of the hit. Bent up the light bar on the back of the new salter a little too. My guess is thats its still complete loss, Im sure they will find some frame damage.

    Wow, I drove buy there today, probably before that truck did. Had to swirve into the other lane because there was a huge puddle where they repaired the road which would have been rough to hit at 45mph....didn't think about falling into the street though haha.

    They cheaped out with the tow. Usually around here they have another truck attached to the down side so you don't get the LURCH/Crash on the way down to the wheels
