How NOT to haul lumber

There is a right way to haul lumber, and then there was the way a Texas driver hauled lumber. In this video, a wood-hauling car smashed its way through a Texas roadway and fled from the chaos leaving wood parts flying.

Twitter user TG (@TG22110) posted the clip to the social media platform, writing: "This country is doomed." The video has amassed more than 3.8 million views and over 74,000 likes.

In the video, a small car hauling wooden planks approaches a highway intersection in Temple, Texas. Because the beams are sticking out of the car's back windows, the car is unable to safely clear the intersection, and ultimately leaves some destruction in its wake.
