At my job a 1070 mercedes sl was being put up for the adjuster to look at oil pan damage for a comprehensive claim, it wasn't lifted in the proper places, as it reached full height it fell on it's side -----made a big noise---the adjuster said "I'm done", ---total, but not my problem,

Didn't someone roll a '40 Ford off of a four post lift a little while ago?
