Ohmygawd he lived for reals? He probably forgot he was pulling a camper. He’ll never live it down cause he is probably still paying for it! Wow.

Kim…yeah, I found some pictures on the net too, from other angles…and the truck isnt smashed as bad as it looks—the roof basically just scraped the side off the truck and peeled it off.

In my hometown we had a low viadock and the truckers always thought they could make it under it and would get stuck or tear off the top of their trailers. Usually when they got stuck they would have to let the air out of the tires. Yeah this guy probably felt like a stupid shit. Imagine turning it into insurance lmao

Joan–you said it!

Queen–no, the poor guy–thats gotta be a couple hundred thousand worth of damage!

Lori–glad it made you laugh. *And glad Im not the only one who cracked up over it! LOL

Lis…yeah, he lived. The pictures I saw…it just smushed the side of the truck, and I think the news article said he was able to jump out just as the roof fell.

Wow! That is hilarious! We’ve all done some stupid things in our times, but this takes the cake. Lets hope he had insurance.
