Today (8/3/11) this boxtruck smashed into the Gregson St trestle and got wedged under the bridge. They deflated the tires and one of Big John's towing trucks pulled the box truck out. Later, Norfolk Southern sent a crew over to inspect the trestle and the crash beam. Sorry - only one angle ... the other camera was not working.
This simple steel stringer bridge provides 11' 8" of clearance and has been hit by trucks so many times it has a special headache bar to protect it. It has spawned a website run by someone who keeps a camera trained on the bridge to capture the truck carnage. This bridge is a case study for how many truck drivers are not qualified to operate their vehicle. Familiarity with a truck's weight and height is absolutely essential at all times of operation.
