Spanish lorry driver wholly embarassed

SPARE a thought for this lorry driver, who had just reversed up to empty his load into a hole in the road, near Badajoz, when his whole lorry got swallowed up.

The 28,000-kilo vehicle was eventually pulled out by three heavy-duty cranes.

  1. Oooh, congrats to the photographer for a great shot. Made my day.

    But sincere condolences to the poor driver and even to the
    roads department. And the Insurance company.

    Oh, dear, apologies again to all for the belly laughter.’Scuse me.

  2. Hahaha that makes me feel better about the time when I made a stupid mistake and drove my van down some steps near my house instead of down the actual road, which was the next right turn. I had to be towed off the steps by a helpful local hombre while lots of Spanish people watched in amusement.

    I am SURE this is the same Driver that taught my Ex-Wife to drive and “park in tight spaces”
    ps. You were a lousy teacher, and she was a lousy pupil.
