Truck Driver Has Anxiety Attack Crossing I-10 Bridge in Lake Charles
If you've lived in Lake Charles, you know the Calcasieu River Bridge located on Interstate-10 can give you nightmares, so when I came across this video posted to WorldStarHipHop, I immediately knew where the person in the video was. Brother, we feel your pain.
From the looks of this clip, a truck driver is crossing the infamous I-10 bridge from Westlake into Lake Charles, and regardless of which side of the bridge you cross over, it's scary either way. You can hear the truck driver tell the person recording his anxiety attack, "We're too high in the air! I can see too much s**t! Oh God, it's water up underneath! I'ma die! Oouh oooouh, I don't wanna die," and my personal favorite, "Aight, I'm almost there! I'm almost there, and I need a Black & Mild!"
Sir, you're going to need more than a cheap cigar to calm your nerves after crossing that bridge.
I try to avoid crossing the I-10 bridge as much as possible. The increase in traffic since the major industrial construction projects began in Southwest Louisiana makes it all a nightmare each day for area residents.
I don't know the man in the video, but if this happens to find him, here's my best advice to you. The radio station is literally walking distance from the bridge. I can assure you, the anxiety of having to cross it never goes away.
Our new slogan should be "Welcome to Louisiana! We've got great food and culture, but you have to successfully cross our bridges to get to it first! Come back again, sha!"
