Katy Perry “Prism” Promotional Truck Totaled by Drunk Driver

When Katy Perry hired several semi trucks to display a promotional ad for her upcoming new release Prism, she had no idea how much extra publicity she’d get from it—thanks mainly to a drunk driver who slammed into one of the trucks in a Wal-Mart parking lot in Pennsylvania.

The incident occurred Friday evening, according to TMZ. The driver of another semi-truck allegedly plowed into the cab of Perry’s promotional truck, causing significant damage during the process. The driver was inside the store, and was not hurt, nor was anyone else. Perry herself was not present. The driver of the other truck initially fled the scene, according to reports, but then returned, and has been arrested for driving under the influence.

The trucks have been getting buzz on the Internet for their gold coloring with the words “KATY PERRY * PRISM * 10.22.13” painted across the sides. The news of the truck mishap virtually overshadowed reports that her advance single “Roar” was leaked two days ahead of schedule.
