Classroom on Wheels? Driver Cited for Overloaded Truck

Imagine driving down the highway and seeing an entire classroom worth of furniture alongside you.

That's pretty much what happened Wednesday in Springfield, Massachusetts.

State police shared several photos on Facebook of a pickup truck they pulled over on Interstate 91 for exceeding the limit for what you can safely carry in a vehicle. The pickup was filled with what looked like several file cabinets, more than a dozen chairs, a desk and more.

The driver was cited for violating Massachusetts laws governing unsecured and uncovered loads.

"Please remember, when traveling with a load in a vehicle, take a look at it and before taking to the roads, ask yourself, 'What could go wrong?'" state police said.
