so... is that guy dead now?
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.
"Somehow he was able to unbuckle the seat beat and exit the other side of his truck as it was falling?" Dude, no! That shit was crushed.
I'm not a huge fan of watching people die
I'm glad the bank is still open through the repairs
That guy's retarded, but in all fairness, that roof wasn't exactly constructed super well.
And as far as I know he lived.
Yeah actually I'm going to blame the construction on that.
A trailer hitting a roof at ten miles an hour should not tend the entire building toppling down.

Did they make that thing out of plaster of Paris?

-1 star for the guy surviving.
NO VIDEO - NO BRAINS
WAKE UP PEOPLE THE ROOF/AWNING WAS NOT DESTROYED BY THE TRAILER BUT RATHER A SERIES OF CONTROLLED EXPLOSIONS
Actually fairly incredible that he was able to unbuckle his seatbelt and get him and his kid out of the truck before it fell.
and it's probably him not wearing it that saved his life. oh, the ironing!

He lived, but his FICA score was not so lucky.

I want to single out so many of you for your glorious comments, but it ends up being pretty much everyone.
Good work. Stars for all.

"Are we still going to the lake, dad?"
Way to take "Drive Thru" a bit too literally.
Do they have building codes in Texas, or durn't they need no big guberment in in their britches?

That's the kind of shit construction one should expect in Texas.
No yeah, that'll hold.
This man very obviously died.
