Sad News From NJ

Our condolences to the family and acquaintances of 47-year-old Thomas Serinese of Coppa's Towing. He died Jan. 12 in a horrible accident. Here's the story from My FOX New York:

NORTH BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) - Police say a worker clearing snow from a flatbed tow truck at a central New Jersey towing business was killed when the truck's bed was lowered by a co-worker, pinning the victim beneath it.
Police told the Home News Tribune of East Brunswick that 47-year-old Thomas Serinese of Burlington was pronounced dead at the scene Wednesday morning.
Police say Serinese and another employee at Coppa's Towing in North Brunswick had raised the flatbed so snow would slide off. The other worker hit the controls to lower the flatbed, not noticing that Serinese apparently had bent over the truck's chassis on the opposite side. He was crushed between the flatbed and the truck's large toolbox.

The Ram 1500 has a lot of power under the hood. Possibly 5.7 liters of HEMI® V8 power to be exact. And up to 390 horsepower. Not to mention up to 407 foot pounds of torque. But who's counting?
