Was returning to the company yard after a long day of running a Case 580 rubber tired backhoe with CP Rail outside of Winnipeg Manitoba Canada some year's ago, when suddenly although every light was on and working that night, I was hit from behind by a pickup truck going around 50-60mph. Nobody was hurt luckily and the impact hardly jarred me enough to take notice. The Chevy Extracab truck wasn't as lucky however, and was of course a complete loss. The driver a man of about 60yrs drunk and operating a ranchers truck he worked for at the time was mostly unhurt but quite shaken, as you can well imagine. What struck me as the most memmorable detail of this entire situation was how where the backhoe bucket had connected with the truck's windshield post the post had been shaped perfectly to the shape of the bucket. And that the post had beenpushed back so far as to be about maybe one foot tops from meeting with the rear window. In other words this poor old ex ranch employee had been left with approximitly 12 inches room for his body to fit into or be crushed to death and he was muck luckier than he could have known due to his slightly off skew senses at the time. A young couple that had been driving beside the older fellow and had witnessed the entire event unfold right in front of them basically, had stopped and the wife told me they'd realized that the poor man was on a definite crash course unless he'd done something quick like? Never did however and these two had felt completely helpless though wanting badly to help him avoid me that night. They'd honked their horn and tried catching his attention for as long as they'd felt they could until dropping back out of harms way for when the inevitable contact finally came. The slightly over the limit tipster was real lucky to escape relativly unharmed as he had alright, and I still thank God everything turned out as well as it had.
