The overpass strike happened in the southbound lanes of the FDR Drive around 7 a.m.
The truck was hauling carrots when it struck the 11’5″ concrete overpass.
No injuries were reported. The incident forced officials to shut down two lanes and caused a traffic snarl in the morning commute.
A truck hit an overpass on FDR Drive in the same area last Monday.
A passing motorist filmed as the truck struck the overpass. He wrote in an Instagram post “going to be a good day for me and a bad day for him!!!”
