How To Hot-Wire A Logging Truck......

This happened Wednesday, July 23rd 2008, in Mill Creek , WA .
The driver was attempting to throw the logging cable over the logs to secure them.
As you can see, he hooked the electric line instead! He said the tires began to fry within seconds.
Very lucky man, he could easily have been fried himself!

(You might say the truck was "hot wired".....
7200 volts direct to ground!)
