Dump Truck Plows Through Wires With Truck Bed Lifted
A Markham driver caught a really idiotic accident with a dash cam video over the weekend.
A dump truck driver forgot to put down the dumper before hitting the road. Eventually, the truck ran into power lines when making a left-handed turn, catching the wire on the truck bed, toppling it onto its side.
The dump truck almost fell on top of another car that was waiting for the traffic light.
The video was uploaded by YouTube user Frank Yu after the collision occurred Saturday at Warden Avenue and Gibson.
York Regional Police said 26-year-old Jaipal Sidhu of Stittsville, Ont. has since been charged with careless driving.
