Driver Abandons Truck Dangling Over Chicago River, But Didn’t Realize He Was On Video
Chicago, Illinois – A Ryder truck driver left the cab of his straight-truck dangling over the Chicago River Monday night near Archer and Ashland, Chicago Fire officials said.
Stunning video shows the truck hanging over the edge of the Chicago River. A tweet from Chicago Fire Department officials indicates they believe the driver may have been trying to send the truck plummeting into the water.
The driver was not found at the scene but could be observed running away from the truck on surveillance video, officials said. This is a developing story and the investigation is ongoing.
