Truck Stuck in Tree Near Portland a Mystery to Investigators
King5 ^ | April 28, 2013 | Evan Sernoffsky

Posted on 04/28/2013 8:58:36 PM PDT by nickcarraway

Crews found a pickup truck stuck in a tree almost ten feet off the ground Sunday morning near Sherwood.

Firefighters used thermal imaging to scan the truck at Highway 99 and Middleton Road and found it was empty. The details of how the truck got into the tree are a mystery to investigators. They were first alerted to the tree at 7:30 a.m. and called area hospitals, but no trauma patients came in overnight.

PGE was at the scene due to safety concerns over power lines near the tree.

If you are going to screw up, screw up so hard that it makes the internet. No point in half measures.

Can they really blame you?

As a side note, besides her obvious lack of driving skills, who would be holding their car keys in their hand for all the world to see after doing that.

And it's a good thing, too. Otherwise they'd have never noticed the TRUCK in it.

1. A really hacked-off bigfoot stuck it up there to warn the owner about parking in his woods.

2. A butter-fingers UFO crew dropped it while taking back to their planet to reverse engineer it to learn the secrets of our primary method of propulsion.

3. It’s really not there.

Joe Jr. was an airman and brother Ted has been known to get a car airborne off a bridge or two.

Did they check YouTube? The person holding the beer in one hand and the phone in the other probably uploaded the video before the saps sobered up.

UFO driver was drunk and picked up a truck instead of a steer. The Bubba drivin’ it ran out of gas trying to get it down from where the UFO dropped it, so he took the keys and climbed down and went home.
