This thread made me recall the time I drove off and forgot to close my hatch....
I guess this type of thing happens to humans every now and then!
I once heard a saying...it went something like this.
”Because we are humans we are entitled to make mistakes, and to occasionally make a fool of ourselves!”

Talking It's Better Than a BOGO!

You should have stopped and done some shopping right there on Buena Vista.

Why -- all you had to do would have been to put your hazard flashers on and checked out what literally fell off the truck!

There's nothing better than a BOGO or in this case, freebies!

Over in Albuquerque a few years ago I was driving south on I-25 behind a pickup truck with a gas lawn mower loose in it's bed and its rear gate not up. My passenger alerted me. She said "Better pull back from that truck ahead of us, that lawnmower is going to fall out.". So, I did and it did, at about 70 mph. It was a sight to behold.

Several friends of mine have placed their purses, packages, eyeglasses and the like on the roof of their vehicle, gotten in and driven off. Sometimes the item was still up there at their destination, other times not.

I guess my point is this sort of thing can happen to anyone. Remain alert while driving.

How is it that one can ignore the warning signals on your dash, that your door is open. I am thinking even if one tried to let them know what was going on they would have been oblivious as to the warnings. How do you never look at your rear view mirror.
Plus how safe would it be to try to dodge the ever falling of cans, and bottles.
Sorry I would have not taken a chance of trying to pass and let them know for fear of driving over their items. An error on their part does not constitute a accident on my part. Explain that to your insurance agent, I was trying to be a Good Samaritan and ran over a can that in turn was sent off to the car behind me, causing damage to my car and someone else.

3 Million-mile safety Bonus at one point in my Truck Driving Career. Get the Point? Backed into my Golf Cart Garage at 1MPH here in The Villages with our new vehicle. That's why they call it an Accident not an On Purpose. I feel bad for the person who took the loss. Maybe they received devastating news shortly before this incident. What a shame.

Wonder why nobody posted, Come And Get Whatever was Salvageable?

Hey man you gotta lighten up a bit! Looking at it from the HAPPY SIDE OF THE WORLD You have to be able to see SOME humor in things that happen. We can't look at everything from the negative side. Maybe they were having a happy fun time in their car? No one was killed or injured so whatever they were doing doesn't make it less funny. If there was a video, it probably would have won a prize on America's Funniest Home Videos".

At least the vultures got a fresh dinner.
