Default Live thread - Downtown 4x4 recovery.

Downtown 4x4 recovery underway. Alley between 15th & 16th & Wynkoop & Wazee - that Tattered cover alley.
Escalade drove out of garage and into open trench. Tow truck just arrived. A construction worker tried reverse - that did not work.

and yes. But the lady was holding a baby and I felt kinda badly for her. But as you can see, it was a big hole. The garage ramp and change to bright outside light probably made it very difficult to see.

The construction workers did try to back it out, but the rear wheels just spun. The front left was stuck good. It literally popped out (They should have let some air out after tensioning the hoist)

They hoisted from the front right and I could not tell if they were grabbing the body or frame.

It was a new Mercedes GL SUV. That's gonna be expensive!

Daniel, is your firm going to get some business from that lady when she sues the construction company for not covering or blocking that hole?
