It’s always embarrassing to see these videos come out of your home state. What we have here is a fine example of what happens when you think all those height signs on overpasses and overhangs don’t apply to you.  It’s like something you’d see in a movie, except the truck doesn’t explode or anything.

What I’d like to know is what did the cops — who undoubtedly showed up to this — do upon arriving? If it was me, I don’t think I could’ve kept from doubling over in hysterical laughter, after I’d determined no one was hurt.  It’s probably best I don’t wear a badge.

  1. What’s really embarrassing to the bank or whoever had the ATM is how easily the overhang came down. It collapsed so easily when the trailer hit it, it looks like a strong breeze could have brought it down.

    Man, it looks like the corner of that roof hit the drivers side of the truck too – wonder if he/she made it?

    This video has been making the rounds for a couple of months now, both driver and passenger (the guy’s son, IIRC) make it out just fine.

    Somewhere out in video land there is an interview with the guy that was driving. It shows the trailer after the wreck sitting at a dealer.
    Something like this is not hard to do especially if your not used to pulling a tall trailer.
