The truck that hit a power pole and overturned on Concord Blvd. near Ayers earlier today has been identified as an Astound truck.

Claycord.com originally reported the truck was from Astound, but Concord Police said it was a PG&E truck, however, PG&E said it didn’t belong to them. When the truck was finally turned over, we could see it was from Astound.

How could CPD say that is a PG&E bucket when there is logo on both doors Geez. Even before it was righted they should of been able to tell

this reminds me of a movie seen:
[Jesse and Chester have tattoos on their backs that say “dude” and “sweet.”]

Jesse: Dude! You got a tattoo!

Chester: So do you, dude! Dude, what does my tattoo say?

Jesse: “Sweet!” What about mine?

Chester: “Dude!” What does mine say?

Jesse: “Sweet!” What about mine?

Chester: “Dude!” What does mine say?

Jesse: “Sweet!” What about mine?

Chester: “Dude!” What does mine say?

Jesse: “Sweet!” What about mine?

If it wasn’t a medical issue, then
A.) Texting / Cell Phone
B.) That Laptop mounted in the Center Console is a HAZARD and a DISTRACTION

No one is hurt. That is good. It was actually an issue with the vehicle. Do not assume.

“That is not my truck, and I did not have sexual relations with that woman.” any other questions?

Ah, so Concord PD is pretty good at playing Telephone, eh? I’m guessing their press department isn’t getting the correct information from their officers?

Snarky dispatchers will say anything so you will get off the phone.

Maybe Jerk could add a C.) The truck may have been in disrepair and had a mechanical failure. Stuck accellerator for example.

Did you ever think that the person doing the press release (a Police Lt) never went to the scene? Go to the academy, become a cop, and show them all how perfect you can be, Dee.

Glad no one was hurt…but wonder if the driver was driving to fast…as they always seem to be in a hurry…except when you need them…glad am no longer with astound….bad service….and they cannot drive either…ha

Dee August 19, 2014 at 10:14 AM

@#10 Since witnesses said it was Astound then the person doing the release should not say who it belongs to if they were not there, Never said I was perfect and you are an a&*

Speeding? Phone use? Earth gravity burst? Collision with an alien transporter? Sudden 200mph wind burst? Sunspot activity? Obama’s fault? You decide.

Dee is so smart August 19, 2014 at 6:28 PM

So Dee, the police should make the person doing the press release go to the scene? Is that how it works in this world?

Way to resort to name calling. I still challenge you to go to the police academy and show everyone how it should be done.

@Dee is so smart:

The more you speak the more you prove your point! Dee is smart, in comparison to you, why don’t you just call it quits! The Police Dept got it wrong, that’s obvious stop arguing it and get over it.

need a caption, besides the obvious, for the guy in the yellow shirt scratching his head.
