Ford Truck Goes Full Tilt!

Have you ever had one of those days that takes a lot of explaining?

Telling your boss you may be late for work because of bad heavy might happen once in awhile,. But we’re sure one excuse that is rarely used is that an out-of-control truck went full tilt on a highway median knocked, down a couple light posts onto the highway, and blocked traffic.

That all recently happened for commuters in northern Milwaukee. And no, it wasn’t Vin Diesel behind the wheel! CCTV footage shown across the nation, including on Atlanta’s WSB-TV, shows a Ford truck in the fast lane when all the sudden it veers sharply left. This causes the Ford to hop up and straddle the median for a number of yards, taking out two light poles in the process. Debris from the crash — light poles included — comes crashing down, blocking a number of lanes on both sides of the highway. While some debris does hit a few other vehicles, neither of the light poles makes a direct landing on a car.

Traffic became stopped in both directions, with other drivers stopping to make sure there were no injuries. Reportedly, no one was seriously hurt.

As for the driver, he wound up in the back of a squad car after failing to pass a sobriety test. We imagine that he had one big, confusing, hugely expensive hangover the following day.

Incidents like this just prove you have to drive defensively, as you never know what could be out there. Thanks to this video, you always have to worry about other drivers out on the road, too. For these Wisconsin drivers, it’s a commute they won’t soon forget.
