The struggle is real for a driver who attempted to steer his semi through a median and found himself stuck in active lanes of traffic.

The person filming the video said that the driver attempted the move in order to avoid backed up traffic. “Can’t wait in traffic, so I’m gonna get my truck stuck,” he said.

During the course of the two minute video, the truck driver tries several times to free his hung-up vehicle and comes close to causing serious crashes with oncoming vehicles.
