I do not know the story behind this clip. But holy sheep dip Batman was the first thing out of my mouth when I watched it.

I just hope the folks in the truck are OK!

"Clip of a BAD fuel stop"

But I had to watch it more than once because it is a white Dodge pulling a Everest Fiver. A certain Texas Boomer I know has a similar rig. (But his is not a Mega-Cab)

Don I had to watch it a bunch too, but that is not a Mega Cab, its just a crew cab. It looks like he just came in to close, Your right though that truck bent right in the middle and looked bad.

Is that really a filling station (not that it matters, what's done is done.)? It looks more like a drive-up at a bank being that there's a clear plastic pipe for a pneumatic tube running from the ceiling to the station that holds the transport cylinder.

I think it's an ATM stop. They came for money..now it's payback time.

It is an ATM and it sure looks like a certain person we know with a Dodge and an Everest.

You watch some of the other videos on the second site. The gene pool really got a strong dose of chlorine at some point.

It is on YouTube with the following info:

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.

Mark Ivy of Texas State Bank stated that the main lobby would be open
for business while the drive-in is being repaired.

Hmmm...sure looked like a fifth wheel to me! Had it been a travel trailer, it's unlikely the incident would have happened.

To the Non-RVing world they are both the same. I didn't write the news article only provided a copy.
