News Crews Catch Truck Driver Striking His Second Overpass


A truck driver hit two overpasses near I-94 at Wabash in Detroit yesterday — and news crews were there to film the destruction.

According to on-site reports, the railroad trestles were clearly labeled 12-feet 7-inches, but the driver passed under anyway, shaving the top of his trailer off.

By the time that local news crews arrived on the scene, the driver was able to get the shaved off top back inside the trailer. Instead of exiting the road, the truck driver continued under the next bridge, becoming wedged underneath.

As news crews filmed, the driver simply powered his truck out from under the bridge, destroying his trailer and scraping the underside of the bridge.

The local news crews said that the truck belonged to an owner operator who could not be reached for comment.
