      Well in that position it is easy to offload.

      Vehicle on fire ?

      Never fear, firefighters (in drag) are right on top of it!

      ehhh probably not, that can be stabilized fairly easily. Also by "pushed off its foundation" it looks like it may have moved a few inches, not several feet.

      if its concentrated damage that can be fixed adjusters do not want to pay to rip down and rebuild a house, just like they dont total a car if they dont need too. Fire damage to homes is often much more extensive than this, and still repaired.

      They will get an engineering crew in their to stabilize the structure, get a foundation company to get the house back on the foundation, and make sure its all plumb and level, stabilize the structure itself, rebuild the structure, and refinish the interior/exterior. Not really that difficult at all.

      I thought you were supposed to take the garbage out with the truck, not make more and dump it in the living room.



      (that's the owner's red truck in the living room, just forwards of the garbage truck's cab)



      I love the report (Lewis is the homeowner)

      New Orleans 2008

      The driver, who was interviewed by police, told Lewis he lost control of the vehicle.
      "How can you just lose control of a huge truck like that?" Lewis told a huddle of reporters as his voice quivered. "How can you just lose control of a truck of that size and tear up the sidewalk?"
      Although five of his family members were home, no one was injured in the crash.

      His father, Frank Lewis Jr., and his sisters Lorlie Holmes and Sandra Preston, live in the other side of his white double. All were living with him as they repaired and renovated their homes in the Carrollton neighborhood, which were damaged during Hurricane Katrina.
      "If it had come a little bit over, they would probably be gone," he said.
      In the other half of the house, Lewis lives with his wife Ateja, a teacher at O. Perry Walker High School, who was walking into the living room and "saw the whole thing happening." She quickly snatched their 3-year-old daughter Isis' hand as she ran away in hopes of evading the barreling truck.
      "It came right through the living room," Lewis III said. "Luckily, my wife was able to run back to the kitchen and grab my 3-year-old daughter's hand. I go in there to see what's happened, and I see my red truck in the living room, and I see my wife going crazy because of what happen. Everyone's screaming in the house because no one knows what's going on. I just heard a big loud crash, I thought the loft fell down. Some workers had been doing work on it."

      admittedly that one has made the rounds. (perhaps here... perhaps not)

      I'm not real sure that age or viewing circulation is a criteria for disqualifying a post, however.

      But I'm not up for an argument about all that . (it usually devolves into a food fight)



      And on to the pics

      It's old but I did see it making the rounds again elsewhere so I'm sure it's due for a rehash. Lol.

      I suspect that one in particular probably emptied most of it's load in to the basement
