Man dancing atop half dead as truck passes under Houston Bridge

A 25-year-old man who Houston police say got on a moving tractor-trailer and began dancing has died after the truck went under a bridge and overturned him.

The man, who has not been identified by law enforcement, was killed just after 11:30 a.m. in the Nov. 10 incident on the Eastex Freeway, which runs through downtown, the Houston Police Department in a press release.

The driver of the red Kenworth tractor-trailer was traveling south along the freeway and was unaware that the man had jumped or climbed onto the 18-wheeler and started dancing, possibly checking himself in, said the police.

As the semi-trailer passed under the Tuam Street bridge, the statement said, the man was struck and thrown from the trailer onto the main lanes of the highway.
