A man reportedly fell to his death after dancing on top of an 18-wheeler truck in Houston, Texas on Thursday, Nov. 10.

The 25-year-old man reportedly "jumped or climbed" on top of an 18-wheeler truck traveling along the US-59 Eastex Freeway in Houston, Texas on Thursday, Nov. 10. At around 11:35 a.m., while the man was dancing and "possibly recording himself," the truck passed under an overpass bridge, and the man was knocked off of the vehicle, New York Post reported.

The man fell off the trailer and onto the freeway. He was immediately taken to a local hospital for treatment where he was later pronounced dead. The man died from multiple blunt impact injuries.

Following the incident, the driver of the 18-wheeler was stopped and questioned by the police. However, he was later released without charges. The driver told the officers that he was not aware that someone was on top of the moving truck.

Meanwhile, the footage taken of the man was shared on social media after the incident. In one video clip, he appeared to duck underneath a freeway overpass before standing on his feet a second later. The video clip cut off before the truck reached another overpass, Fox News reported.

People who witnessed the incident posted comments about the disturbing accident on Facebook.

"I saw the contorted body and broken neck and arm. It was a horrible way to begin a day," wrote commenter Crystal Davis. "And I took the time to describe the imagery because it was traumatic for myself and everyone actually there. EVERYONE had the look of, why? Why did this have to happen."

"I was also about 4 cars behind and I could not believe my eyes... my hand went right over my mouth with disbelief and sadness running thru me," another commenter Gabriela Diaz wrote.

The name of the man who died in the tragic incident has not been publicly released, pending verification by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.

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

An investigation into the incident is underway.
