Out of control U Haul in Kohls parking lot

So my husband was waiting for a pizza this evening at Paisano's in the Kohls shopping center off of Burke Centre Parkway. This U-Haul truck came bombing into the lot, made a few bad turns, damaging at least three cars and hitting a light pole before coming to a stop. The police were on their way and a crowd had gathered so my husband left. Did anybody get the story of what happened?

First guess - failure to properly maintain brakes.

Second - an illegal driver.

Those things usually have bad brakes, so it was probably the only way to get the damn truck stopped.

Sounds like someone was on their way to the storage units located behind Kohl's and either misjudged their speed/breaking distance required or had a brake failure.

Glad your car wasn't one of the ones nailed by it. I used to park on the side of Kohl's all the time. Never really thought of the the rental trucks going by over there. Guess I'm lucky that I never got clipped by one.

U-Haul's slogan is (or at least used to be) "Adventures In Moving". Which always amazed me -- that LAST ****ing thing I want when I have to move is an "adventure"! Nice, quiet, predictable, and incident-free is more what I have in mind.

Sounds like this guy got his "adventure", anyway!

Probably brake failure. All the truck rental places are known for never doing any maintenance on their vehicles. I worked for a company once that rented trucks from Ryder,and the engine of the truck I was driving totally died, because Ryder had not changed the oil in 2 years.

I rented a medium sized Uhaul for a trip from VA to TX. I was at some motel along the interstate somewhere when I found 2 12 packs of Bud light under the seats but they were not full of beer, they were full of weed, pot, reefer. the devils lettuce!! I threw them in the trash can at Arbys.
Thank God I did not get pulled over by the cops. Someone told me that drugs get moved around the country that way. They hide shit in the truck and let the unsuspecting driver move that shit down the road.

Why was your husband so anxious to leave when the police showed up? Your IP address will be of some interest to law enforcement.

Drive a big truck - its easy anybody can do it. Yea right. Last time we moved I drove the 28 footer and it was slow and easy. Hardest part was filling it up without doing 100k damage to truck and pumps.

A) He was hungry.
B) His pizza was getting cold.

Isn't it fairly obvious?

on a tangent -- I have a tough time believing anyone needs to smuggle weed from VA to TX. That said, had that happened to me I'd have a tough time tossing it. Haven't used it 20 years, but I'm sure I know someone I could pass it off to and have a cut come back to me when it's all gone. Hard for me to toss valuables.

It's not a bad plan. Plant the weed in the U-haul. Follow in a car with a spare key to the truck.

Let the guy drive a good distance and then at the right time(lunch or dinner stop) retrieve the weed and take it to the sale point.

That's too much work and risk. The POS truck could break down. Two drivers could run shifts. One driver could simply make their stop three hours sooner or later and sleep in the cab of the truck at a rest stop.

I'm guessing the stoners forgot about their stash or there was a destination beyond TX that was already planned.

Zed: "Thanks for helping me move, bro. You got the weed, right?" Joe: "No. I thought YOU got the weed!" together: "Aaaaahhhah" and the next 60 minutes is two shitheads trying to find a uhaul truck with a pair of skis on the side of it somewhere in the mid-atlantic to south-central United States.

(because I watch the fuck outta the rental truck when I move all my stuff in it - nobody is getting in the cab of that thing without cops being involved)

U Haul is not the worst moving company for sure, their services are pretty good comparing to other companies. If you had a bad experience with these guys, feel free to reveal it here https://uhaul.pissedconsumer.com/review.html , every opinion will be heard.

Why not just pay an illegal to transport your drugs?

About 10 years ago I was heading east on I-66 around Centerville and saw a plume of black smoke off in the distance.

Reaching the RT 50 exit area the traffic slowed to watch a large U-Haul truck fully engulfed in flames - The entire truck.

Traffic on the west bound side was gridlock, and the fire department was stuck in traffic unable to reach the blaze, while 10 Koreans with cell phone ran in circles around the inferno...
