What's going on here?

Look out...look out...LOOK OUT!

Not really.

Recently, I was driving cross-country...and as I crested a hill, I encountered this scene, in the wide open spaces of southeastern Illinois.

Look again. Note the cars in the distance, in the westbound lane.  (Craig Allen photo).

Even from a distance, for just a moment, it looked as though the truck could be driving the wrong direction...heading right at me...but that wasn't the case.

It was being towed backwards, by a tow truck.

Also note the "tow lights" across the front grill. (Craig Allen photo).

So...I moved in close, and lined my car up with the truck, so that, in the camera, the illusion looked real.


Drive safely!
