Truck trailer in China snaps electric wires after driver forgets to put it down

A truck trailer caught the electric wires and snapped them after the driver forgot to put the trailer down in Shanghai on July 13.

In the video, a trailer tiling up on the back of a truck suddenly hooked onto the electric wires hanging in the mid-air and dragged them forward until they snapped.

According to reports, the driver named Zhao found the truck had something wrong and stopped to repair it.

Since it suddenly started raining Zhao rushed into his vehicle to drive and forgot to put the trailer down.

Police contacted the maintenance people to repair the wire.

Zhao has to pay for the 90,000 yuan (£10,500) for the damage and he was also fined and deducted licence points by the police.
