    Hope nobody got injured. I also hope you have good insurance. An accident like that can bankrupt a small-business.

  5. sue dumps says:

    Hope someone can clean up all that oil/fluid too smh! Hope the driver is ok!

    • Seriouly says:

      Sorry to tell you but that is not going to be cleaned up. Just as a matter of interest how would you clean up that , besides from removing the source don’t think anything else will happen. Not quite the Exxon Valdez.

      • sage says:

        Maybe put a boom around the immediate area and oil absorbent pads, pump the floating oil out and clean the affected shoreline? I don’t know, don’t we have an emergency measures plan and equipment in case of a large spill?

        That’s our government budget after the PLP government left. Underwater.

  9. Bermudian girl says:

    Glad the driver espaced without ingury. Sorry it was so cold. Hope that wasn’t his livelihood

    • Seriouly says:

      No. Oh course it’s not his livelihood. He was just out for a Sunday drive and decided to go for a swim. Most trucks in bermuda are just for leisure, except for all those ford 150′s style trucks

  10. San George says:

    Not the driver’s truck either.

  11. Triangle Drifter says:

    Oh no! Think I know whose truck that is.

  12. Ingrid l says:

    Lord is that over Harrington sound side? Looks like Shark Hole vicinity! Can’t wait to find out what happened there….Driver, you are so lucky, good thing it didn’t land wheels up, cab down!!!

  13. ticktock says:

    plp’s dreams torpedoed!

  14. Lone Wolf says:

    That’s quite a drop. The driver is lucky to escape that uninjured. I’m pretty sure he needed some wipes and new pants after that one ….

  16. Takbir Karriem Sharrieff says:

    May Allah bless the driver and occupants to be safe and sound,and his family and business not to suffer undue stress,inconvience, heartache and trauma….Peace.

    • Family Man says:

      But allah couldn’t stop him going over the cliff? Pretty useless magic man.

  17. Dangel says:

    @lonewolf – The truck driver had an angel with him and he received his miracle! A Life changing experience.

  18. thetruth says:

    Bermuda drivers are crap aren’t they.
    It’s lucky he didn’t kill anyone.

    • Point boy says:

      @the truth.
      You are absolutely incorrect. We have some of the best truck-drivers! Have you seen the size of the trucks on our tiny roads? They stay in there lane also. Unlike some of the (Desperate Housewives) out there in there oversized SUV’s

      • Zevon says:

        Until they drive through a wall into the water. Or into a tree. When they do that, they’re crap aren’t they.
        By the way, the word you’re looking for is “their”.

        • Point boy says:

          Thanks for the spelling tip mate. I’m blue-collar, been out of school a long time.

  22. Andrew Dice Clay says:

    Lots of funny comments, lots of dislikes on those comments. You people ain’t got no sense of humor. Lighten up, like the americas cup comment and the non mariners race comment, plp comment not really funny,,, just very true
