Sounds like the lot was not designed for loaded trucks. I hope whoever owns the lot gets to hold the truck ransom until the company pays up for repairs - apparently they had no business driving through there.

Wonder if the lot had Load Limit signs posted at the entry/exit points,Company and Driver are on the hook if
the Load Limit signs were ignored.
