Catastrophic curb impact

Let me paint you a picture... a picture with words and also a picture. I'm riding along in the Denver Cruiser ride last summer, and hear this pretty big impact followed by air escaping and a lot swearing...

Curb, meet wheel

Went back to check it out and it was a guy who'd tried to get up a curb by just lifting his front wheel... except it a sharp curb and he was moving really fast when it happened. I think with a truing stand and a spoke wrench... yeah, we can get that out just fine.
