A man in Houston, Texas, is dead after falling off the top of an 18-wheeler that he was dancing on top of when it passed under a bridge.

Houston police say the 25-year-old man was knocked off the top of the truck around 11:35 a.m. on Thursday while dancing on it along the US-59 Eastex Freeway, unbeknownst to the driver, KRIV-TV reported.

Police say the man jumped or climbed onto the trailer and appeared to be filming himself dancing.

Video of the incident was posted online by Grizzy’s Hood News and the man can be seen ducking under one overpass before standing up again and continuing dancing. 

After falling from the truck into oncoming traffic, the unidentified man was taken to a nearby hospital where he later died.

The man died from multiple blunt impact injures, Houston Public Media reported.

Houston police say the truck driver was evaluated after the incident and found to not be impaired. 

The driver was also questioned by police and released without charges.

“We haven’t had a case like this in quite some time,” Houston Police Department spokesperson Jodi Silva said.
