Take note of the Pete in the lower photo. This is what happens if you park at a truck stop for too long. Your tractor starts to fall apart.

Good grief...

It’s also what happens if the offending driver is too stubborn or lazy to G.O.A.L.

I’d bet a truck to its driver side pulled out, but didn’t pull forward enough and ripped that front end off. Lazy....

I'm sure his comment was supposed to be taken as a joke. And not seriously.

Poor guy in the Pete - looks like he had a nice light load of styrofoam on. Now he ain't going anywhere but the body shop.

I happened across a real time video (You Tube I think?) of a similar truck incident at a truck stop. It's incredible how much damage is done when these trucks come in contact with each other. Even at very slow speeds. Mik D., thanks for posting the photos. A very graphic safety lesson.

The biggest problem I've noticed with parking lot accidents isn't when they first hit the truck, it's that the person pulls forward and usually the trailer bumper will RIP anything it can off the truck. If the person just stops and gets out, you can figure something out without causing so much damage.

Jamie, spot on. The video I saw was a perfect example of that. Of course, the best policy is to GOAL and watch the mirrors so these accidents don't happen.
