Infamous bridge strikes again for poor ‘lost’ driver


Yet another semi truck has fallen victim to a railroad bridge in upstate New York. 

A semi truck struck the 11 foot 6 inch railroad bridge on Young Street in Tonawanda, New York at around 6:45 p.m. on Tuesday, October 20th, making it somewhere around the 60th time the bridge has been struck since 2000, reported WYRK News

The empty semi truck, driven by 34-year-old Eddie D. Brown, sustained major damage to the trailer, but no one was injured in the incident. 

Brown reportedly told police that he was lost on his way to Batavia when he accidentally struck the bridge. He has since been issued a summons for the incident. 

Truck traffic has been prohibited along Young Street between the Fremont Street Bridge and the Vietnam Veterans Highway on/off ramp since March 2019, following three bridge crashes in one week.
