The Kings Highway Patrol has apologised after an officer made a “little bit of an error” and posted a video of the traffic jam on social media.
The footage was posted to Facebook on Friday night, but quickly went viral and was viewed over 1 million times.
The video shows a black Ford pickup truck being blocked by a white van.
The video shows the truck being turned onto its side by the vehicle that was blocking the lane.
A white van then follows behind the truck, which then drives across the lanes and into the centre of the lane before a second van arrives and drives into the lane again.
It is unclear what caused the problem, but the video shows that the truck was not able to merge.
Later in the video, a woman can be heard asking the officer to get her truck out of the middle of the road.
After being asked if she wanted her truck back, the officer responds that she doesn’t.
“You’re not a truck driver,” the officer said.
“I don’t know if I could even drive a truck, let alone a bus.”
The incident was filmed by the officer and posted on social networking site Snapchat.
When the officer asked if the truck could be moved, the woman responded “I’ll get my truck out if you can move it”.
She then said: “I know it’s not easy for you, but if you need to get out of there, I’ll do that.”
After the officer replied “No, I’m not going to move it, you can stay here”, she said: “‘Cause I’m just doing my job.”
“Just get the truck out,” the woman said.
However, the video then shows a different angle of the situation.
According to the police report, the driver was trying to exit the lane when the van swerved in front of the truck.
Then, the van overtook the truck and blocked the lanes.
In the video the truck is also seen to be travelling a certain way and driving slowly and deliberately through the centre lane.
“He’s just a little bit out of control, just out of his element,” a police officer can be seen saying in the background.
She also says she “wants to get a ticket” and tells the officer: “You don’t even care about us.”
But, the police officer said that was not the case.
On the video that is still up, she said that she was “furious” at the incident and that the officer “should be ashamed”.
“If she didn’t do her job, I don’t think she would be in the department.”
‘We just want to see her’The police officer told ABC News: “She needs to do her work.”
However the woman who posted the video said that wasn’t true.
“‘I’m going to get my car out of here’,” she said, and then added that “this is just the beginning”.
“I want to just see her,” she said.
