Kinda funny if you look in pictures #7 and #8. Some of those are the same people that watched the other one go over.

Yikes! Look at the picture just before the truck hits the drink... those people sure seem to be in the path. I'd think this had to have happened pretty darn fast, would they have been able to jump away fast enough? how about the operator? It doesn't look like they thought about safety of any kind... cool pictures though

I find it really amusing that a different truck/crane company was used the second time!!!!

And of course, you can best that Walsh's (the orange truck that went ker-sploosh) and Long's (The BIG green truck that wound up actually performing the recovery) have probably been in a "pissing contest" for years.

Can you imagine Old Man Walsh having to cut a check to his biggrest competition?

I just hope there was no pic's of ambulances in between the to wreckers. Some people seemed to be standing rather close in some of those pics.
