A strange accident brought a Houston freeway to a complete stop.

Apparently, the trailer's hydraulic arm spontaneously activated and -- unbeknownst to the truck driver -- lifted the bed up into the air while barreling down the freeway. The trailer became stuck in an upright position, blocking traffic and intriguing numerous onlookers.

Fortunately no one was injured in the incident.

      Know what annoys me, people who nag about anothers spelling a.k.a heidi, guess what in this comment thing there is no spell check. Also humans make mistake and in his technological age most people are so use to spell check they don't read it before pressing submit to check for errors, we're only human.

        I have read your paragraph 3 times and still do not understand what point you are trying to make. It is obvious that you did not check anything before you submitted your comment.

          terrilynn, I agree. I believe it's an ego thing. Some folks are in such a hurry to see their comments posted, they don't have the courtesy to stop and reread before they submit. Everyone makes a mistake now and then, but failure to look over your comment to check to see if it 's intelligible or even reasonably correct, is just plain rude. It's like saying the rules of grammar and spelling don't apply to me because my opinion is more important than basic rules.

      Why is he getting a citation? are we not allowed to have an accident that is out of our control anymore? It would be diffderent if he was drunk or texting or something like that. But to get a citation for something out of your control is stupid and I would tell them to shove it where the sun don't shine if I was this guy

        Rest assured the driver had input into the problem. The truck had mirrors and he could have seen the bed lifting. Take your comments and shove them where the sun dont shine.

      It really annoys me to read comments so poorly worded such as the one below mine by "NORMAN." I'm not sure why, but that is one of those things in life that really gets me. Spell check was invented for a reason people.. please use it before pressing send. ..Another thing that annoys me is people who ask how to spell a word while typing an email or in Word. Do they realize if they would just finish typing it how they think it is spelled, a little red squiggly line will appear under it if it is wrong and Word will TELL YOU how to spell it??? Use your brain people!

        My dear Heidi, Below you will find a copy of your posting completely unaltered from your original writing.

I hope you realize that the people who wrote Word, Google Chrome, and other programs all needed to learn to use their brain to write the program and have it work. Using the programs, however, is in no way using your own brain. You should thank God for small favors. Before you fault anyone for their errors you need to look at your own.

        I'm with you, Heidi. I hate people who don't re-check their spelling or their sentences. Makes me think they are illiterate. The only problem with spell check is that it doesn't recognize homophones, such as their, there; hear, here....etc.

        Elsa in case no one informed you or your not up on your current events the man's name is Barney not Bernie...Now stop showing off just how dumb you are. I suggest you stay in school, if you are NOT in school then you should really go back. Its not so bad to pass up your parents in school...Just don't go to school in Texas they rank at the bottom in education but whats good for you they rank in the top of unwed mothers. Texas & YOU perfect together...Say hello to good ole' boy Rick there for me and tell him God is watching him and waiting for him to make his run for pres...
