21 Unbelievable Truck Mishaps
1. Fire Truck in a Sinkhole
Calling the Emergency Dispatch as an Emergency Dispatch vehicle sure has to be awkward. The crazy, frightening things about sinkholes is they’re extremely hard to predict.
2. Low Clearance U-Haul Parking Garage
That sign is posted for a reason. Hopefully this U-Haul truck driver checked off on getting insurance.
3. This Semi-Truck Trailer in The Ditch
Just over the horizon, every long distance driver hopes for that scenic diner overlooking the mountains.
4. 4×4 in Four Parking Spaces
We get it – it’s a nice truck. Taking up four parking spaces, though? This guy must be confused as to what 4×4 means.
5. This Submarine Truck
This truck is about to turn into a submarine. That’s the unfortune lesson these gentlemen had to learn the hard way when they took their van out onto the “mostly frozen” lake.
6. Lifted Truck Fails to Impress
A fool and his money are soon parted. Unfortunately, there’s a few trucks out on the road where the mods done just don’t make sense.
7. This Coal Rolling Jerk
Two polar opposites parked at a red light. What better way to send the message than blowing a steaming roll of thick diesel smoke right into the window of a gas sipping hybrid?
8. This Tow Truck Fail
9. Truck Carrying a Car
We’re pretty sure that just because a car meets the payload requirement of the truck doesn’t mean it can just be loaded on back.
10. Truck Driver Cutting Off Traffic
“Hey, I’m drivin’ here!” Another big mistake truck drivers make is being forced into the position of blowing through traffic – like this Pepsi driver surely did.
11. Seriously Stuck in The Mud
Of course when you get that brand new clean-as-a-whistle pick-up, you’re going to want to do the most natural thing possible: get it dirty.
12. Bridge Weight Limit Exceeded
It’s got to be nerve racking to drive a semi-truck with this much weight on it. Then to have to drive it over a bridge, no thank you.
13. Semi Truck Runs Into a Bridge
Nothing like thinking you’re making some great time on a long distance haul when you forget to see the low clearance sign below a bridge.
14. Beer Truck Stuck in Mud
Battleship sunk! This beer run is going to be a bit behind schedule after this cab driver slid off the road and wound up in a big tall trough of mud soup.
15. Truck in Trees
We were promised hover cars, darn it! This guy couldn’t wait, apparently, as he took his truck airborne. Just that one simple matter of trees getting in the way and he could have got it, too!
16. Truck in Ice
17. Semi-Truck in a Ditch
When it’s time to pull off the road – not like that! Whether this driver was just over on his log books and needed to take an immediate break or if he blew a tire and had to make an emergency detour – it’s still going to be a long time before he’s back up and moving again.
18. Brick Truck Fails Hard
That’s one unexpectedly large shipment of bricks right on your doorstep! There’s that great moment where the driver looks back and realizes there ain’t no easy way out of this.
19. Jackknifed Semi-Truck
Turn back before it’s too late! Oh wait a minute – it is! While this truck driver avoided the senseless fate of taking off the top end of his cab, he surely has gotten himself stuck in an even sillier predicament: jack-knifed under said bridge. While it’s great he stopped – unfortunately the effect is the same for the other drivers. That bridge is effectively closed for awhile.
19. Jackknifed Semi-Truck
20. Semi-Truck Stuck on Train Tracks
Up over the hill we go! That great moment when a truck driver realizes that not only did he make a huge mistake – he made that huge mistake stuck on train tracks.
21. Diesel Truck Rolls Coal
Talk about a smokeshow! This is all kinds of hot but I can’t imagine it’s very healthy.
