Exclamation Gang bangers lament, or, LA Truckin (NWS)

This fine upstanding member of the infamous 18th Street LA gang decided one day that he would try to car-jack a semi truck at gun point .

The gangster jumped up on the driver side, while the truck was in motion , and stuck a gun in the drivers face.

The only problem was that the truck driver opened up the door and knocked the attempted thief off. He lost his balance and fell under the wheels of the truck, at which time the driver slammed on his brakes, resting on top of him and decided that this was the perfect time to whip out his Fuji Disposable camera...


Didn't look real until you see the third picture.

Exclamation Shit, should have "snopes'd" it first

According to Snopes.com, it's an inaccurate description. But the photos are real.

Was gonna say - anyone that knows semi-tractors, that guy is squashed under the passenger side drivers (note the mud flap) not the driver's side.

Wonder what the real story is. Whatever the story - was effective.

Yes and that's a smooth concrete floor, not a city street...

Per Snopes, it was at a truck stop. Seeing the photo, I thought he was backed over. Which does appear to be the case, per
