Vehicles can be heard honking their horns at the truck prior to the crash in an attempt to warn the driver, but the motorist does not appear to notice the trouble.

Authorities said the Saturday crash in Qatif, Eastern Province, was under investigation and the cost of repairing the sign would be imposed on the truck driver, who was not injured, and the owner of the vehicle.
