We can joke, because thankfully no one was seriously hurt when a cement truck took a detour through the baseball field at New Braunfels (Texas)
earlier this week, while the team was practicing. A photo of the outcome was posted on Twitter.
As reported by the San Antonio News-Express
, the truck barreled through the right-field fence after it was involved in an collision on an adjacent road. After crashing through right field while taking out some batting cages, it continued across the outfield and through the left-field fence.
The newspaper reported the truck finally came to a stop after it hit a truck and a parked school bus. One player – Mark Zuniga – had to avoid the truck. The truck's driver and passenger were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
"It's amazing that nobody got hurt," coach Doug Edwards told the newspaper. "The whole thing happened so fast, and luckily Zuniga ran the right way out of the way."
The cement truck definitely had more than warning-track power.
