Yesterday I suspect had to be the worst day in memory for the container hauler you see in the video below.
A police chase of a suspected child molester in Los Angeles began when the suspect told police he was suicidal and sped away from their attempt to arrest him. Performing a maneuver to stop him shortly afterward, police spun his pickup into the rig. Here’s hoping L.A. County picks up the tab on the damage (to the container and chassis only, I suspect). Here’s the vid:

Affected trucks include model year 2008-2018 Freightliner Cascadia and Western Star 4700, 4900, 5700 and 6900 trucks. DTNA says after hard brake applications, the brake light pressure switch may not activate the brake lights with the light application of the brake pedal.
