Driver smashes tall trailer into underground car park

This is the disastrous moment a driver realized his trailer was too tall for an underground car park in Las Vegas – but decided to take a gamble anyway.

Footage shows the driver struggling to reverse his pick-up truck and trailer up the entrance ramp to the underground car park at the Aria hotel in the Nevada city on September 18.

But when his attempts repeatedly fail, the driver slams his foot on the accelerator and heads straight for the entrance – damaging the roof of his trailer and, according to an onlooker, getting it stuck for hours.

During the clip, the driver slowly reverses his pick-up truck and the trailer back up the entrance ramp.

As he continues to edge back, vehicles behind him begin to blare their horns and one of the people watching can be heard saying: ‘Oh, he just doesn’t know how to drive.’

Just moments later, the trailer starts to jack knife into the road to his right and the filmer shouts: ‘Yo that is wrong! Immediately wrong!’

The frustrated driver then decides to head towards the underground tunnel once again as screams are heard in the background and the filmer exclaims: ‘What is he doing?’

The driver accelerates towards the middle of the car park entrance before the trailer crashes into the roof of the tunnel.

The air-conditioning unit takes a hit and the footage abruptly ends.

The filmer told Viral Hog: ‘He erratically made several attempts to exit but continued to get more and more frustrated. He didn’t allow anyone to attempt to help him. 

‘Finally, he hit his breaking point and gunned it. He took off the AC unit of the trailer and caused who knows how much damage on the other side.   

‘Six hours later the area was still blocked off as he was still stuck in there.’
