Naked woman dances atop semi truck after Houston highway crash
UPI News Service, 03/07/2016
A morning rush hour crash on Highway 290 in Houston led to a bizarre stand-off between police and a naked woman dancing atop a semi truck.
The Greater Houston Traffic and Emergency Management Center reported a crash involving three vehicles on Highway 290 just prior to 9 a.m. Monday and the scene took a turn for the bizarre when a woman climbed atop a stopped semi truck and disrobed.
The woman was seen on traffic cameras sitting nude atop the big rig and occasionally standing up to dance.
Traffic on both sides of the Northwest Freeway came to a halt for nearly two hours while police and firefighters attempted to talk the woman down from the truck.
The woman was coaxed into a ladder truck basket about 11 a.m. and Houston TranStar reported the accident scene as cleared at 11:27 a.m.
The woman's motive for her truck-top activities were unclear, but witness accounts indicated she and the semi truck were both involved in the crash.
