Watch This Dump Truck Get Stuck Under a Lakewood Traffic Light

There are days when you forget where you put your car keys and your phone and even where you parked after leaving the grocery store. But at least you can feel better knowing you aren't as forgetful as this dump truck driver who failed to put his/her back bed down before attempting to head through a Lakewood intersection.

As the truck's hoisted-up back end blasted the traffic light at the corner of Lewis Drive and Franklin Blvd. yesterday afternoon, one local YouTuber thankfully caught the action from his dash cam.

Naturally, the truck got stuck, as many trucks driving through Cleveland have been wont to do.
