NEW YORK – Semi-trucks are not supposed to drive on New York parkways due to the low overpasses, but it seems that did not matter to the driver of this 18 wheeler.

The driver took his chances and even made it under a few of the overpasses without a problem.

But video from the dashcam of the car following behind captures the moment his luck ran out.

The truck smashes into an overpass, obliterating the truck.

The overpass didn’t sustain any damage, but the parkway was closed for several hours while the mess was cleaned up.
