  • lift gone wrong

    I caught these pics on my commute a few years back. Not really sure what was going on to cause the tippage. The project was an overpass on hwy 26 at the Sylvan exit in Portland, OR. These guys were having a BAD DAY!

      In the third pic I think they just need a little more air in the tire & all will be good.

        The left rear rim may be a wee bit square as well.

          Have you ever seen the little signs that say:

          "A lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part"

          In this case, a failure to plan for contingency was a success in discrediting little signs.

            Cna you say STRESS!

            It would be interesting to have electrodes hooked up to the people involved just to measure up the vitals and gauge their stress levels.Guaranteed off the scale,Frank

              Hopefully nobody was killed or injured in this mishap.

                  I'm pretty sure that was NHRA's fault.

                    I just coin my own...

                    In case of stairs
                    use elevator


                    The heart rate and blood pressure of the guy operating the forklift was OFF THE CHARTS to be sure.

They we delivering an engine and the bogies it was sitting on decided to get out from under the load when the operator made to sharp of a turn due to being push to "get the job done" They had Harbor Dr tied up for the better part of a day
