That manhole cover stopped the truck dead in its tracks when it hit it. Man, that's a lot of power. I wonder what caused it? Someone forgot to open the outlet valve?

Wow!
Good thing that was storm water, and not sewage.
Looks like a case of too much rain, and not enough drain. That cover looked huge! The small 24" MH covers are usually 170lbs plus - that one would've been waaaay heavier (well, heavy enough to stop a truck).

I love how cars just keep driving by, even after the wrecked truck is sitting there. I wonder where this happened... it seems that here in the U.S. some people would at least to take some pictures on their cell phone.

I believe the date on it is 1999 prior to picture phones.

Having spent much time on highway safety, my educated guess it that is a 60" cover. You need a loader/backhoe to remove those!
