Corinth Street Bridge
Posted October 25, 2012, by Roy Hodgens (DallasCop2566 [at] gmail [dot] com)

Wish I had a hundred dollar bill for every accident I investigated here involving insufficient vertical clearance.

Clearance plainly marked at 12 feet 9 inches, but when they were denied the request to make trailers longer back in the late seventies, they made them taller and drivers just could not adapt rapidly.

Let the air out of the trailer tires, use a heavy duty wrecker and DRAG IT OUT-------.

Trailer repair companies LOVED IT-----
