I would also classify this bridge as a polygonal Warren pony truss.

Interestingly, this particular example has a top chord consisting of exactly five slopes. If the web members followed the Parker arrangement it would be classified as a Camelback. I have never heard or seen the term Camelback used in reference to a polygonal Warren however.
