Troopers share video of big rig zooming through a work zone, damaging equipment


The Oklahoma Highway Patrol (OHP) shared video of a big rig zooming through a work zone on I-35 as a reminder to slow down and move over.

On February 25, OHP shared dash cam video of a construction zone accident on I-35 near Pauls Valley.

“The paint crew was restriping I-35 and had the right lane with a trooper and a cone crew behind them. The semi was driving at a high rate of speed and hit the carriage on the truck. It resulted in $10,000 in damage. One crew member on the back of the truck was just feet away from the impact. The trooper was not able to track down the truck. This is just another example of why it’s so important to pay attention on the roadways and move over or slow down for flashing lights,” OHP said.

You can take a look at the video below.
