I hate to say this, but I was in fact on that accident scene and the polls in which were on the bed of the truck were thrusted foward into the cab causing injury. This was caused by the driver slamming on the brakes. I'm sure you were told what the scene consisted of and I'm extremly sorry. I won't go into detail because of it. A steering column had nothing to do with what was done. That was still in tact. RIP.
