This is actually a nightmare I’ve had when it comes to backing things into the water.
Illinois reporter Jakob Emerson was doing a stand up near Lake Springfield when he happens to look behind him and sees a 4×4 sinking into the lake.
Here’s the video from his own Twitter feed.
Now this is a new one!
An entire truck sinking into Lake Springfield just as I was finishing my (unrelated) 6pm live hit.

Before we go any further, it must be noted that no one was hurt and the truck was empty at the time.
THAT BEING SAID.
Hooooooooo boy. Whomever forgot to set the parking brake is in trouuuuuuuuuuuble. That is an expensive ‘oops.’ I mean, that truck didn’t just get a little submerged. It SUNK. I felt like Taps should have been playing as it went down.
The best part is the guy on the boat just shrugging like he’s saying, “What are ya gonna do, amirite?”
