[VIDEO] Dump Truck with Raised Bed Gets Obliterated by Overhead Highway Sign

If you’re a general contractor in the Davie, Florida area, I have an idea why one of your deliveries might have been late last week.

A driver on I-595 in Florida caught some pretty dramatic footage of a dump truck, with its bed raised all the way up, crashing into an overhead highway sign while going full speed. The overhead sign took a little bit of a hit, but, as you’ll see in the video, the truck got absolutely rocked.

WSVN News in Miami reported that the Florida Highway Patrol determined that the cause of the accident was a malfunction of the truck’s hydraulics system.  The surrounding portion of the highway was shut down after the accident to clean up the mess and make sure the sign wasn’t going to fall, causing some major delays during morning rush hour.

Thankfully, no one was injured in the accident.
