Bad news for the bottom of that truck oil pan, trans pan.
That guy obviosly wasn't paying attention
Do you think he drove over it or backed over it ?
The way it looked to me was like he backed over it

A load of ballast might have p[prevented that. HIGH speed reverse, too much plow and not enough counterweight made that easier to do then you'd think.

Idk what he had for ballast, but I'm pretty sure he did have one of the larger Buyers tailgate spreaders on the back. I cant remember for sure, and cant tell in the pic if thats the tailgate hanging there or the remains of a spreader, or both. I'd guess you'd have to be going at least 20 to do what he did there, which IMO is way too fast to be going especially during the day when there's so many more people to be watching. The story I've heard is he was watching for the backhoe, had been up for like 24 hours, etc., and just lost track of where he was in the lot.

While I didn't do that, last year I was salting a drive thru. While backing up I ran up a small pile of frozen stuff which in turn gave way and got me hooked by the dump body. Bent my body and the pole a bit!

I think counterweight would have done more.
