What's with the truck?


“Anythings possible,” said viewer Jordan Barrett.

Friday morning a truck was discovered on a sandbar in the middle of the Ohio River.

How it got there was a mystery until prankster Ollie Page came forward.
Saying he filled the tires with helium.

Telling folks he’d bring it back to shore, along with a show, Sunday night.

Hundreds gathering at the riverfront.

“My thought is I hope he does it but if he don't I mean it’s still nice out here,” said Barrett.

After an hour of waiting, the crowd started getting restless.

Ollie’s friends spreading the word it was too windy for the stunt to be done.

“But the wind is so crazy, Ollie is someone that doesn’t want to risk danger of anything,” said Alicia Burnett, friend of Ollie’s.

But Ollie was nowhere to be found.

Friends of his driving the truck around the sandbar so the crowd would, at least, see something.

“That was cool,” said Cameron Reime.

But after so much time spent waiting, many were suspicious it was all a myth.

“I’ve been out here for about 4 hours,” said viewer John Alvey.

“I have a feeling it might disappear during the night one night,” said viewer Kerri Schultz.

“I don’t think it’s real,” said Alvey.

Believing the truck didn’t float by itself to the sandbar.

“It was a big disappointment for me,” said Alvey.

“I wasn’t caught up in the hype just thought it was funny,” said Schultz.

Some will return tomorrow to see if the task can be done. Friends of Ollie say they’ll try again Monday at 11 a.m. if the weather is nice.

“I’ll be back tomorrow. I gotta see if it happens,” said Alvey.
