Worker Sent Flying As Semi-Truck Hits Elevated Platform Over Texas Freeway
Don’t you just love dash cam videos? They are the gift from the gods of technology, letting us capture things we could never explain to people who weren’t with us in the car at the time of happening!
Ever since they came out, the dash cam’s initial purpose is to insure you in case of traffic accidents or when some unlucky person decides to blame you for running them over. People have had their minds taken off the guilt of ruining someone's life or idea of a life with the footage their camera captured.
The majority of videos we get captured by these awesome devices let us see what it looks like when someone gets served instant justice, cold and hard! Whether it is a rowdy pedestrian or a careless driver, we get to see that there is justice in the world and it will catch up on you, sooner or later.
Texas resident Andrew Wolf captured dash-cam video of the moment a worker on an elevated platform was hit by a semi-truck in Richmond on February 25. The impact left the man dangling by his safety harness for a few moments before the rest of the crew lowered him down. The driver of the semi-truck stopped and Wolf called 911, according to ABC13. The worker was shaken but uninjured, the outlet reported.
Now, we don't really know how this is even possible , but it is obvious that it is a mistake made by a miscalculation by one of the workers. As if highways aren't dangerous enough to begin with, we have a worker trying to fix a broken traffic light and all of a sudden, BOOM! We can't tell exactly at what speed this trucker was driving but at this point we believe it is not relevant because ether way the worker was too low for a truck to be able to pass under it.
The way he flies off once that truck hits him is truly scary and stressful to look at, because as any one would imagine him being seriously hurt or even worse.. However, this story does have a happy ending, so keep reading a take a look at what this trooper lived through.
