Dump truck bed destroys highway sign

Today’s dose of dumb comes from a highway somewhere in Saudi Arabia. The immediate question the video below raises is how is the driver unaware of that lifted bed? If it’s long enough to completely decimate a 20-foot-high highway sign, that thing is creating some significant noise and wind resistance while in motion.

Sure there could have been some kind of mechanical failure that caused the bed to raise, but hit the brakes man. Just about the only positive this guy walked away with is that the collision didn’t yank the truck right over.
