How heavy is too heavy? Calculating truck weight is always critical–not just for crossing old bridges, but also for driving across seemingly benign parking lots.

The driver in this YouTube video was behind the wheel of a heavy water truck when it dropped right through the roof of a parking garage in Houston on Friday. Thankfully, USA Today reports that the driver is the only one with minor injuries.

Adding insult to injury is a sign right next to the truck which in part reads, “Maximum weight 4,000 lbs.” Tough break, literally.
