785 Pro versus Escalade
So about 12:45am this morning Christin and I were just crawling into bed when I heard a bad, bad noise. Earlier today (technically yesterday) I towed my 785 Pro to my house because RedlineR6 was on his way from Iowa to pick it up. I parked it in front of my house, lots of people park in front of their houses here, it's a wide street, no big deal.
I raced for clothes and Christin hits the outside lights. It's not a pretty sight. There is a large man in the front yard begging me not to call the cops. Christin thought fast and called the cops before she even walked out of the house. I can smell alcohol. Christin stalls him and I run (barefoot) to my neighbors who is a University of North Texas cop. Luckily the local police showed up fast.
Turns out there was a witness, a teenager and his mom were driving home and saw the whole thing. The guy tried to leave, but his Escalade was too tangled up in the trailer.
The drunk is a Dallas police officer!! The Escalade was stuffed with alcoholic beverages.
Christin snapped pics:
The 785 looks like it survived pretty well, it basically got launched off the trailer and landed ass first in my front yard, did a pyroette and fell back onto my driveway inches from Christin's Jeep. Total distance traveled was about 20-25 feet! There are some chunks out of the hull, the steering, trim and reduction nozzles are either gone or trashed.
My 2006 Tundra is hurt bad. Possibly totaled. The cab is mashed in about 4 inches in the center. the back window is busted out. The whole bed is trashed.
Wow. This sucks.

I think the trailer will make a nice swingset now.
