Two motorists try to warn a dump truck driver with a raised bed, but they are unable to get him to stop before he collides with (and destroys) a highway sign.
The crash happened in the northbound lanes of the East Loop yesterday afternoon. The motorists filming the video attempted to warn the dump truck driver prior to the crash that the bed of his dump truck was raised, but he either didn’t see them or didn’t understand the warning.
It isn’t clear whether the truck driver was hurt in the crash.
Here are some images of the aftermath.
