Just had a thought; Looks like the time/date stamp shows about 8:35pm on 10/13 (Sat.). With all the yelling and carrying on, then the run thru the overpass, reckon he might have had a little "too much fun" (or something)?
On motorcycles it's a good philosophy, twist the go grip. It either ends the suspense or fixes the problem. With my TT not sure that's the route I'd take.

Simply put "You Can't Fix Stupid" to have a warning flashing brightly and not turn is senseless!! There were no other tall vehicles next to him, so should have realized it was him. Then again maybe like the guy I ran into before that couldn't not backup!
Just like the video of a Swift Trucking driver busting up his cab forcing a U turn, hen he could have backed up about what looked like 50' to 100' then take a simple left turn.

Maybe the warning signal should send a text message, apparently those folks are already looking down at their phones to miss the obvious warnings!!!

Stupid is as stupid does. They deserve what they get. My camper is 10’11” and I would never go under that bridge.
