HIGHWAY camera footage captures the moment a New Orleans truck driver attempted to cross a heavily flooded underpass.

After thirty seconds, this driver, James, half-submerges his Chevrolet in water.

As the truck dives deeper into the floodwaters, we see the vehicle’s bubbling rear exhaust lose power until it’s completely dead.

Once the exhaust of this Chevrolet breaks, the car becomes immobile and floats in a stationary position.

Now trapped, the male driver of this video gets to higher ground by climbing onto his semi-submerged truck.

With almost three quarters of his truck under water, this ambitious driver stands on his vehicle while talking on the phone.

New Orleans EMS arrives on site and paddles to the Chevrolet on an inflatable life raft.

As the driver drives to a safe area, he smokes a cigarette and talks to a reporter.

A CBS reporter asked this Chevrolet driver, “Did you think the flooding was going to be this bad?

“Why did you drive through?”

James replied, “I saw someone else go through it before and that’s why I went through it.”

The reporter of this interview then asks the Chevrolet owner why he decided to break through the roadblock that was put up.

The rescued pickup driver replied, “I had asked a guy, and the guy said they were going through it.”

Vehicle water fording technology has come a long way – but no car has a standard setup capable of handling these depths.

Tesla’s Model 3 can drive through up to 38 inches of water, but this New Orleans flood was estimated at 5 to 6 feet deep.

This unfortunate road accident found its way to Reddit, where commenters quickly reached a consensus.

One Reddit comment read, “I hope his insurance tells him to eat shit.

“Being a stupid f**k should have consequences.”

Another Reddit user added, “Row, row, gently row your truck down the creek…”
