    East bound and that bridge is 15ft iirc.

    The whole E side of Houston has low ### bridges.

    That pickup with the 4-ways on might be the "customer"? IDK, lots of people like to get close and then just sit there, in the way...

    Looks like a de-icer truck? Or was a de-icer truck. They're usually high.
    Hauled certain models without tires sometimes to get the height down. Looks like he had it loaded on a flat rack for export,waaaaay to high.

    Yeah, I didn't see that until after I posted. I guess the video just came out.

    Not sure what sort of truck it is exactly but WTF, it almost looks like he's hauling two different shipments , and thought he could get away with loading the truck on whatever that platform is (open flat container?)

    .... idiot
