Idiot Gun Driver of the Day. Tanks are apparently hard to drive. A collector in Oregon purchased a 1969 Chieftain battle tank, and it was to be delivered. However, when the delivery truck driver got there, he found he couldn’t make it up the last hill. So, he unloaded the tank on the side of the road, and an employee of the buyer decided to try and drive the tank up the hill. Hey, he had the manual. He failed. Twice. The tank slipped out of gear, rolled back down the hill, across the highway, and through a guardrail. So he tried again, with the same result, but through a different guardrail. The driver was cited for reckless driving and first-degree criminal mischief. The guardrails sustained $1500 damage. The tank, being a tank, was unscathed.
