    Good to know the driver was ok.

    Now they can sell it to someone who want to live in a van down by the river.

    No denying that one.
    "Uh, no that wasn't my work van...."

    So the van was valued at $250,000; is that covered by Geico?
    LOL

    Reminds me of my brother a couple years back. ;D

    He was leaving around 2 in the morning from a night of fishing and thought this was the boat landing. Wrong! It was the entrance to the creek, and the ice is never thick where there's moving water. The landing was about 30 yards to the left.

    well, youd have to see the way it happened, i can easily see how the driver made a mistake like that.
    the width of the channel was about the width of a street lane, it goes straight like a street, and it had just snowed, leaving a powder on the ice.
    it looks just like a road if you hadnt been there before and known where the real road was.
