Equipment Accidents

Now since I work on heavy equipment (when I have a job), it's in my nature to become interested in most things regarding it. Not everyone gets as crazy as I do, I mean, I know a lot of people who just stop thinking about it once they leave work. Me, I'm incredibly interested in it, in all shapes and forms. I have collections of service manuals, training material, etc. I love it.

I'm also interested in the more morbid side of things. I think equipment accidents are fascinating. It's not cool that in most of these someone was probably injured or killed, but like everyone else, I slow down to look at car accidents. I present to you some of the images I've saved over the years. I don't know the story with most of them, but most speak for themselves.
