Man Impaled by Tripod
In the realm of the bizarre, a military veteran riding in a van was impaled by a survey tripod that was thrown by a madman from an overpass. The tripod head appears to have struck the man. Thankfully, the article states that the man will make a full recovery from several broken ribs and a collapsed and/or pierced lung.
I always dreamed of tossing my base off an overpass when one of innumerable things went wrong with it, but this guy actually did it; and nearly killed someone in the process.
Need more tripod control laws...
Prop 65, law. Warning: Tripods May cause reproductive harm in CA.
It was thrown off a part of 2nd Street that overhangs the boat section of I-5 in Old Sacramento. The tripod belonged to a Caltrans crew, the victim was probably hit by the prism assembly. I used to work in the building which is barely visible in the left side of the photo, One Capitol Mall.
