    Man he barely touched it. Couldve backed out no problem and been on his way. How he didnt see the sign is beyond me , its litteraly right there in big yellow and black letters

    I love how the photographer made sure to get the truck, bridge and sign all in one shot . I wanna laugh but it's not funny. Pretty silly rookie mistake. I feel for the guy just a tiny bit

    Should have dropped the air, might have made it. I think he figured he'd just back out and boogie. The biker cop had different plans.

    How did a driver think a 13’ 6” semi truck would fit under a bridge with a 12’ 5” clearance is beyond me.SMH

    I have no choice but to assume he just missed the sign. That's a piss poor excuse regardless but if he saw it and decided to be a rebel.... I do know employers dont like these bridge hits one bit. I wonder how difficult it will be for him to find a new gig
