Coffee as the inevitable has happened yet again. Thankfully, Mustang owners can breathe a sigh of relief as the latest genius challenger lifts behind the wheel of a murdered out Dodge Challenger Hellcat. Like so many other crashes before it, the latest incident started when the driver was apparently leaving the event. After a Chevrolet Silverado passes, the Challenger pulls out onto the street and begins accelerating. While they don’t appear to have been attempting anything too extreme, the driver loses control a short distance later. As you can see, the rear end slides out and the Challenger slams into the rear passenger side of the Silverado. This PIT-like maneuver lifts the truck up on its side, but it quickly returns to the ground. However, the force of the impact eventually pushes the Silverado up against a curb and then flips it over.
The video ends shortly thereafter, but the uploader said the occupants of the truck were okay. That’s good news as no one should ever get hurt by an idiot’s failed attempt to show off. While there’s no word on whether or not the driver was cited for anything, the 2021 Challenger SRT Hellcat has a supercharged 6.

Your larger cement trucks, they’re always turning over,» complains Shannon Yates. Out on I-75, an 80,000-pound mixer fell on this guy, he’s groaning, all busted up. We go out, gotta pull the thing off him, right? After a few scenes like that, you learn to ignore the screaming. Plus, you learn where not to look. He looks a little like Dale Earnhardt Jr. He tries to help me with the arcane vocabulary of towing professionals. He points to spade extensions, outriggers, boom slide pads, load-holding valves, counterbalance valves, house locks, underlifts, cab-to-bogie angles, turntables, drag winches, bucket-mounted light pylons.

Last weekend, this 18-wheeler endos off the freeway,» he informs, «just cartwheels through a 20-foot culvert, right? The thing’s in chunks, big time. There were 350 lawn mowers on board, so we had, like, a whole landscape of mowers, too. We picked all that up, hoisted the big chunks, carried the rest. Yates and his father are richly equipped for such recoveries, operating, as they do, not one but two Challenger Rotators. The Rotator is the biggest, baddest wrecker made in America, the madam mother of happy hookers. Its boom extends 30 feet and lifts in 360 degrees-hence the Rotator moniker.
Yet so casually does Shannon Yates weave the Rotator through snarled traffic that it’s easy to forget he’s shepherding a 68,740-pound contraption that took 11 weeks to build. At least until you notice he’s using up two lanes every time he attempts a right-hand turn. His Rotator is 42 feet long. It is powered by a 15. 8-liter Caterpillar in-line six producing 600 horses funneled through an 18-speed Fuller transmission. This particular wrecker, along with 150 other models, is constructed by Miller Industries in Ooltewah, 15 minutes northeast of Chattanooga.

The configurator reveals new details about the truck.
Thirteen years ago, Miller began buying up tow-truck manufacturers nationwide. Now it owns more than half the market and sells wreckers almost everywhere-as far away as China. Its brands include Century, Vulcan, Chevron, Challenger, Eagle, Holmes, and Champion. Those marques, by the way, are listed in order of prestige. Miller employs 400 workers in a 200,000-square-foot plant-sparks flying like a foundry-where 65,000 unique pieces are fabricated, many by hand. Over the decades, wreckers have evolved with a niche-driven specificity that would have boggled Darwin.
One, for instance, is dedicated to nervous repo men. It features a pair of L-shaped grabbers that can clasp a car’s wheels and lift it in six seconds. The repo man never has to leave his cab. Another features an ultra-short wheelbase for use in tunnels. Miller even sells a wrecker that can be operated by remote control up to a distance of 400 feet. To demonstrate the remote’s accuracy, Miller’s V-P of heavy-duty sales, John Hawkins, recently attached 50,000 pounds of steel—and one piece of chewing gum—to the wrecker’s boom, then lowered the works to pick up an egg without making an omelet. And, of course, Miller is famous for supplying NASCAR’s entire fleet of wreckers—about 50 at last count. Says Hawkins: «At the big tracks, we can handle 15-car crashes about every 15 minutes.

The Biggest Skiing in America demands America’s best lifts. Like so many other crashes before it; is dedicated to nervous repo men. You want to plan ahead, the Pajero Sport is officially named as Montero Sport.
For Rotator owners, though, 75 percent of their hooking is devoted to incapacitated 18-wheelers. In its spare time, the truck can be deployed to lift commercial air conditioners onto rooftops, launch yachts, erect signs, and hoist factory machinery. Yates once removed a huge sign that augered through the roof of a Taco Bell. And he recently recovered a car that was backed too far down a boat ramp. Behind the wheel, Yates is as brave as a Texas judge. Faced with a fully loaded but dead 18-wheeler, most operators prefer to tow the tractor first and the trailer later.
He’ll tow the whole thing intact. Except it means he’s now piloting a rig that weighs 150,000 pounds and is 120 feet long. In traffic, you want to plan ahead,» he instructs. Even unladen, the Rotator is a triaxle nightmare to drive, at least for novices like me. Big wreckers like this are sometimes billed out by the hour but more often by how many pounds they lift. Despite America’s recession, Yates’s company just logged its most lucrative six months. More cars on the road than ever, more trucks, too,» he says.

And they’re pretty steady about running into each other. Unless times are really tough, Yates is sour on repo jobs. It’s easy to turn a whole neighborhood against you,» he warns. Besides, this business is dangerous enough. Seems like every other day a wrecker driver gets killed. It gets so dangerous at some scenes that the cops will leave. If it’s out there and needs lifting, I’ll do it. Course, I can’t count the number of times I’ve had my mirrors torn off.
180,000 cement truck for us—free-lifts the thing, dangling it in the warm Tennessee breeze. To add a measure of difficulty, he hooks it not from the rear of the wrecker but from the side. It takes less than 30 minutes. A lift like this, it’s a piece of cake,» he says, «’cause it’s dry, clean, and stable out here. But it gets complicated when one of these guys frags a truck about 100 yards through the woods and into a swamp, and you got cops jawin’ at you left and right. As if on cue, a policeman appears on the scene, pink-cheeked and eager to divine our motives for levitating massive construction machinery in a public park filled with sunbathers.

Millions more watched the wrenching tragedy unfold on live television. Five years later, space flights of the shuttle began when Columbia traveled into space on a 54-hour mission. Launched by two solid-rocket boosters and an external tank, only the aircraft-like shuttle entered into orbit around Earth.
In the aftermath of the disaster, President Ronald Reagan appointed a special commission to determine what went wrong with Challenger and to develop future corrective measures. In September 1988, space shuttle flights resumed with the successful launching of the Discovery. Since then, the space shuttle has carried out numerous important missions, such as the repair and maintenance of the Hubble Space Telescope and the construction of the International Space Station. On February 1, 2003, a second space-shuttle disaster rocked the United States when Columbia disintegrated upon reentry of the Earth’s atmosphere. Despite fears that the problems that downed Columbia had not been satisfactorily addressed, space-shuttle flights resumed on July 26, 2005, when Discovery was again put into orbit. The Space Shuttle program formally ended on August 31, 2011 after its final mission, STS-135 flown by Atlantis, in July 2011. Sign up now to learn about This Day in History straight from your inbox.
