Dump truck vs. freeway sign collision backs up traffic for miles

A video showing a large dump truck colliding with an overhead freeway sign near Houston on Thursday has gone viral, with more than 18 million views since it was posted. 

The person who posted the video, Carlos Escobedo, was on Houston's East Loop behind the dump truck. He was trying to let the driver know his bed was up. However, before he could get the driver's attention, the dump truck smashed into an overhead sign assembly and flipped sideways, snarling traffic for miles.
