Dump Truck Dumped

A Saudi Arabian truck driver's seemingly innocent mishap got a whole lot more destructive when he forgot to lower the bed of his truck before taking to the highway. As caught on camera by a nearby driver, the truck plows full speed ahead into a road sign that hangs over the desert freeway, not knowing or caring that the truck may be too tall in its current state to fit underneath.

Ignoring the warning honks of other drivers, the trucker only slows when the sign is destroyed - and his truck almost tips over from the force. Even more curious than why the driver didn't notice that the bed was still up is the white pickup that follows him at full speed. Perhaps he was trying to warn the driver of the sign's impending doom.  Nobody was injured in the wreckage, and as far as we know, the only damage other than the road sign will be to the driver's wallet.
