18-wheeler hits warning sign

SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - The warning signs could not have been bigger, but that didn't stop a truck driver from plowing into it. The driver of an 18-wheeler crashed into a construction warning sign that was attached to another truck on I-20, near Barber Road in Smith County.

DPS says the trucker told them he was trying to pass another car before merging into the next lane, but did not realize how far away he was from the warning sign.

No one was hurt in the wreck, but the driver was ticketed for failing to control speed.
