This shot looks EXACTLY like a place in Dover, New Hampshire and this kind of thing happens there as well. My girlfriend was walking under the Dover bridge on the right side of the picture when a U-Haul came by and lost its load.

Yup! this happens at least once or twice a year. The State of Connecticut D.O.T. is now going to put up some type of warning device sort of a last ditch system. Usually the trucks don't get that far under. :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Yikes! I hadn't heard of this trap before this. It always seemed tight driving under that bridge but I assumed it had the minimum clearance. Looks like this guy snagged it while starting up the rise on the north side of the bridge. Was the train parked there when it happened?

A similar thing happened near Santa Barbara a couple years ago. A truck hit a pedestrian bridge that spanned across the 101 freeway. That bridge wasn't as strong as yours though. It came down.

G'Day.
That doesn't seem like an overly high semi either, so maybe they could dig a bit more out under the bridge. A good warning device would be a set of chains suspended from an overhead structure.
Such devices are used in the mines around here to make sure that truck bodies are lowered before going under powerlines, and conveyors etc. Makes an audible noise by belting the truck, which alerts the driver.Because the chains are flexible it doesn't really do a lot of damage - certainly not as much as hitting an obstacle anyway :-)

I think this one is bad enough that letting air out of the tires will not allow the truck to drive out........

Crunch!

That would have made one hell of a noise! (not that I know what hitting a bridge in a truck sounds like :o )


There are several road briges over Aucklands southern motorway that are a little on the low side.
One of them gets hit on average once every 2 or 3 years buy trucks that are a little taller than normal.
