VIDEO: Dump truck driver drives bed right into a power line

The video below is a classic example of an operator flying to close to the sun. Or, in this case, driving too close to the power lines.

Based on the way this whole thing plays out, it seems like this wasn’t a case of this crew underestimating the height of the lines or the driver not seeing them. By the way the driver is operating the truck and how hard he’s trying not to hit the lines, we’re led to believe he really thought he could not only lift the bed from this spot, but also run the load out as well.

He could not. And the result is a fireworks display this crew likely won’t forget.
