Heat buckling on Hwy. 29 in Eau Claire, WI causes motorist to jump. (Youtube / pinkfairylulu)
(WVLT) -- A viral Youtube video is proving that the heat can cause more than just sweat in some parts of the country.
The Youtube user, pinkyfairylulu, says she was filming motorists from an overpass in Eau Claire, Wisconsin over Highway 29.
The highway buckled under the heat, which is when the footage of this car taking the jump was shot.
Local 8 News sister station WEAU reported road buckling is an issue in the area due to the concrete contracting in winter and expanding in summer.
