No wonder it takes so long. No offense to emergency services people, but they seem to have no concept of other people's time. Same goes for other professions, notably judges & doctors. OK, flame away at me, but cops used to stand by the side of the road after accidents and yell "move, along, move along, jack," waving their arms. In the rain. According to an old movie I saw, anyway.

I had no idea this was they way they righted an overturned truck. Thanks for the slide show.
