Worker sent flying after semi-truck smashes bucket over Texas freeway

SHARE

A Texas utility worker recently had a harrowing experience when a truck clipped the bucket he was working in above a highway southwest of Houston, the Houston Chronicle reported.

The worker was standing in a bucket suspended above an intersection on U.S. 90 in Fort Bend County on Feb. 25 when the top of a passing truck hit the bucket. The impact shattered the bucket, leaving the man dangling from his safety harness, according to the report.

The accident was captured on video by motorist Andrew Wolf, of Sugar Land, Texas.

The worker was taken to a hospital but didn’t appear to suffer any major injuries, Wolf said in the report.
