Heavy Vehicle wrecks

It would be interesting to encounter a heavy vehicle wreck or a truck parked up/bogged somewhere that was a fuel tanker/delivery truck/service truck etc.  These could be randonly spawned around the map to stimulate exploration rather than the players going to known buildings looking for specific resources.   

 

For instance finding a fuel truck in some random location makes that location worth returning to, not simply traveling through.  Finding a supply truck that has a payday of gear or resources that is too big to tow makes for a location of interest rather than just a random cornfield that would otherwise be ignored.   

 

It would also add some interest for a road to be completely blocked by a large wreck that would take time and resources to remove. But also produce a large amount of metal sheets/bars/pipes when it was disassembled.

 

It would be more intersting if there were zeds in the cab's, although how that would work is a bit tricky. 

 

Obviously, once there is a heavy vehicle in vanilla, the players will want to drive it.... and there are mods for that.  But the wreck idea is about random intersting loot/resources that mix up the map a little, not about the vehicle itself.

This is still in my head, in the walking dead game season 1, 3 months into the apocalypse Lee's group is unable to go to another city with a train because of a "heavy vehicle wreck" type of situation, an even like this would be cool too. Sadly the picture wont show up https://walkingdead.fandom.com/wiki/Highway_Overpass but this link will show you what I mean if you're interested.

Love idea but there are some mechanic problems with it. So events like that need to be premamently on map and for now we dont have generator to put it at random. Remeber that it will cut some content if it generate it towns. Still event like that need to be prepared and have some variations. Much work for devs as something that will be only see by players from time to time.

We already have random car stories like the bandit event, police blocade, special police blocade, crashed ambulance, crashed regular vehicles and so on, they can easily add heavy/commerical vehicle wrecks along or on the roads, they're still random in form of stories that appear as you expore in different locations. It would be probably easy, I just don't understand why we don't have trucks.
