Illustration for article titled Logging Truck Incinerated After Driver Hooks 7200V Power Line

File this one under #@(*$)*#&%@(*#&! The story here goes that a driver securing his load of timber outside Jackson, TN tossed a cable over his trailer not paying attention to the power lines looming over his rig. Of course, he caught one, sending 7200 volts coursing through the entire affair. The resulting shitstorm set the truck and the load of lumber ablaze almost immediately, leaving behind a dumbstruck driver who's lucky as hell to be alive. Look closely and you can see the fire still blazing away at the center of the trailer. Not what you'd call gold-star material, Mr. Truck Driver. (Thanks for the tip Sean)
