After watching and rewatching this incredible video of a new Dodge Ram 2500 and its camper clip the edge of a bank awning, bringing the bank down on top of the truck's cab, it's hard to believe that all of the passengers managed to make it out unscathed (you can just see the driver bolting right before the camera goes dead). It happened earlier this month in Shelby County, Texas, when the driver was attempting to park his new truck and trailer. Full details and pictures below the jump.


Here's the blurb from Shelby County Today:

At approximately 3 PM, Tuesday, July 2, a 2008 Dodge Ram 2500, pulling a new travel trailer, hit the corner of the Texas State Bank Drive-In on Tenaha Street, causing the complete awning to come to the ground. Luckily, the driver of the Dodge, Mickey Miller, of Garrison and his 10 year old son were able to exit their vehicle uninjured.

According to Miller he was circling the bank to park on the other side when the corner of his travel trailer caught the corner of the bank awning. Next thing he heard was a rumble as the awning started falling against his driver's side door. Somehow he was able to unbuckle the seat beat and exit the other side of his truck as it was falling.

On a positive note, he was able to get a great interest rate on the loan for a new truck. (big thanks to gr0w1er for the tip)
