Police pulled over a trucker who claims that he didn’t realize that he was dragging two large 1,000-pound boulders underneath his trailer.
New York State trucker Samuel Daniels of Buffalo, New York was driving in the city of Tonawanda when he cut a corner too sharply and damaged a fire hydrant. Unfortunately for Daniels, he also managed to somehow snag two large thousand-pound boulders underneath his trailer, lifting the left rear wheel entirely off the ground.
Daniels was able to drive for about a mile before he was pulled over by police.
According to authorities, Daniels claims that though he thought his truck was driving awkwardly, he didn’t notice the boulders.
To remove them, a heavy duty tow truck had to be called to lift the trailer off of the boulder.
Daniels has been ordered to appear in court and charged with taking an improper turn, leaving the scene of an accident, and failure to use a truck route.
