Milwaukee dump truck disaster caught on video


A dump truck driver was uninjured during a startling bridge strike that was caught on camera on Thursday.

The incident was captured on cellphone video on May 21 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, by Jim Witkowski.

In the video, you can see a dump truck with a raised bed colliding with a bridge near the Milwaukee Mitchell International Airport.

No one was hurt, but the crash left the bed of the dump truck wedged underneath the bridge and separated from the rest of the truck.

Witkowski told Fox6Now that when he went to check on the driver, the driver said that he was positive that the bed was down because he always puts it down. “No, the bed was not down — it was up!” Witkowski told him.
