    I hope who ever it was makes a full recovery.
    Can’t say I’ve ever seen a cab torn off a frame?

    I've heard of driving the wheels off a rig but driving the cab off is a whole new level.

    Hmm. Hit a solid object at ~100mph, truck did pretty good. Hopefully he gets smacked with reckless driving when he gets out of the hospital.

    I knew a kid who put an aftermarket "racing" harness in his '73 Chevy Pickup. He. Bolted. It. To. The. Frame. He said it's "Safer that way." He was not a smart kid.

    Scary, especially when you see images like this.

    The person got air lifted out, not sure how they're doing. He/she was running from the cops. I drive that stretch of road often and I honestly don't think you could get to 100 in a Tacoma, maybe if it was s/c, I think the sheriffs may have exaggerated the speed a bit, but still one heck of a crash to tear the cab off.

    Yeah, I'm seriously questioning that 100mph claim, especially looking at that road. I guess that headline meant "top half". :anonymous:
