Lubbock Drivers Don’t Pair Well With Construction
Just when you think nobody noticed you do something dumb, FMX is there to snap a photo.
I glanced over while I was waiting at a stoplight in the middle of some really obnoxious construction on 34th and University to see this poor fella stuck in a ditch. It looks like he didn't realize that the road work had rendered the ramp exit from the parking lot completely unusable, and drove his sweet ass truck right into a gaping hole in the street. Oopsie.
To be fair, there doesn't appear to be any construction tape in the parking lot itself to warn customers not to drive onto the road like you normally would. Yes, there is a cone in the street, but a little something else wouldn't have hurt. He is also high up, in a big truck. Maybe he didn't see it coming.
Or perhaps he is simply a Lubbock driver.
Nobody needs me to go into detail about the stellar driving we see in Texas, but if you are craving more stupidity, here is a great place to start.
Whatever the case, there is a happy ending. The man's truck was pulled out by another truck (if you look you can see it parked behind him), and though there was damage to it, it appeared to be minimal on the outside. Who knows what happened to the underside, though. That might be another story.
I can't rag on this guy too hard. I got stuck on a median in the middle of the street in my old Mustang. It was pretty embarrassing. My car was worth nothing compared to that fancy truck, so I imagine the man is a bit salty about it, wherever he is.
