Caltrans sign in Corona is hacked to show support for Donald Trump
A Caltrans sign in Corona had an unexpected message for drivers on Christmas: Support Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump.
Someone reprogrammed the northbound 15 Freeway sign at Ontario Avenue to read: "Inland Empire supports Donald Trump. Merry Xmas. Vote Donald Trump," the California Department of Transportation said.
Nikki Worden was on her way back from the movies when she and her husband saw the sign backing the GOP frontrunner. The pair exited the freeway, turned around and passed the message again while recording it on video, KABC-TV Channel 7 reported.
The post has received more than 450,000 views since Worden published it on Facebook on Friday night. The sign has since been fixed.
