Earlier today, Friday 2/17/2012, I was leaving the Norfolk Southern Ashland Yard in the Back of the Yards neighborhood on Chicago's South Side and was waiting for the bus when I heard a loud tire screeching noise and subsequent crash. I turned to see this massive dump truck lying on its side and a car speeding away.

Within seconds, a mass of Chicago Police Department vehicles surrounded the truck and handled the emergency. This was one of the good aspects of the story as CPD vehicles refuel just behind where this truck came tomrest. I didn't go over on foot to the scene, because I needed to get the bus, but I got this footage from on board the bus. From what a good friend of mine who works for NS told me, the truck had just refueled and was exiting to turn south on Ashland Avenue when he was cut off by a car. The driver slammed the brakes and jerked the steering wheel to avoid a collision and ended up like this. I saw an ambulance come to take him away, but I have no idea about the driver's condition. I hope he turned out fine because the truck landed on the driver's side.
