The Little Tractor Trailer That Couldn't: Semi Tries To Climb Icy Hill, Fails, Takes Out Stoplight

January 17, 2018

tractor-trailer-vs-icy-hill.jpg

This is a vertical video from Longview, Texas of a tractor trailer attempting to climb an icy hill, failing, then sliding backwards into a stoplight, which safely lands on some power lines. I love how this lady and her friends are just hanging out by the road documenting which cars and trucks are able to make it up the hill. They sound like a good time. What do think they do in the summer for fun? "Probably sit on a porch." Man, some of my fondest memories have been made sitting on a porch. "Which memories?" Future ones with these people.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to JD, who agrees that trucker should have just transferred his load to that red Mustang that did make the hill. Problem solving!

    Jesus, what's with the shit ton of copy/paste posts? Are the Russian fake accounts trying to build up their 'commentator cred' for shenanigans down the road...? Fuck.

    I blame the Amish. Because they don't have internet and will never know.

    They are just warming you up, so they can spam you with their mums a prostitute for £26 per hour at goooogle and got a free Range Rover last week.

    Interestingly, one thing quite a few of them have in common is they all "recommend" in their profiles some stupid game hacks, from Clash of Clans, NBA or some other shit.

  • OK good. I thought it was just my device. I have no idea what that's all about.

    There are two types of people. Some who see a dangerous situation and attempt to warn other vehicles of the icy hill dangers, and then there are people who vertically film the chaos (while standing under an electric pole).

    Hey dude , remember when you laughed at us canadians for carrying triples on our trucks ......just sayin'.... There are two types of people: Those who would see this dangerous situation and try to warn vehicles of the dangers of this icy hill..
    -and then there are the real heroes who just (vertically) film the carnage.
    The past couple of days in Texas have sucked. I mean, lack of freezing temperatures is one of the main reasons I live here. Now we have all this ice on the road and snow chains and those trucks that spread ice and sand everywhere don't exist. So, I've stayed home from work for a couple of days......

    Standing under those power lines was a bold choice and by bold I mean stupid. This story/video could have easily been one of tragedy in so many ways.

  • Mark

    well, vertical video so, yeah....stupid is the operative word there.
