A bizarre and dangerous incident was captured on cell phone video in Orange County when a man fell from the back of a big rig Wednesday morning.
The video obtained by Traffic News Los Angeles shows a man clinging to the rear of the tractor-trailer as it traveled southbound on the 57 Freeway in Anaheim just before the 91 interchange.
The man tries to carefully step off the bumper of the moving vehicle only to tumble and fall onto his chest, the video shows.
The truck driver may have been aware of the man’s presence since they appeared to be driving slowly compared to other vehicles.
Officials with the California Highway Patrol told KTLA that they did not have any information about a person falling from a moving semi-truck, but did receive calls at around 10:30 a.m. about a person jumping onto a big rig near the Orangethorpe exit.
