Front-Loader Plays Firetruck To Help An On Fire Car In Flood Waters
June 6th, 2017
When your cars on fire but also up to the door in flooded water, it leaves you in a tight spot. And that’s exactly what happened to Nikki Carmona when she drove her Mercedes through a flooded street in Dallas after ignoring the flooded road warning, according to local station WFAA.
She stayed in the car until the water rose to hip height and then when smoke started pouring from the hood she decided it was time to bail. She was able to get to the side of the road but it was the employees at nearby machinery company, Bane Machinery that headed the other way. The general manager hopped into a front-end loader and scooped up some of the floodwaters along the way to dump onto the car to put the fire out before the fire department could get there. Bet for once she was happy to see construction equipment on the road.
This Sunday starting at 9am on Spike we have all new tech from the shops. In Engine Power, Pat and Mike start transforming a stock Mustang GT into the Rislone Mustang Sweepstakes Ride. They install a track engineered suspension system, massive brakes, plus wheels and tires.
Then on PowerNation Katie’s guest is Dan Muldowney, the co-founder of Race-Gas, a product you’ve seen used a lot on Engine Power. Dan is an avid racer and he’ll talk about why and how they created Race-Gas to solve problems he experienced at the track. He’ll also hint at some new products coming down the pike. So make sure you tune in.
