News station crew happens to catch video of a semi scraping under Tonawanda bridge


A local news outlet doing a story on a new campaign to stop bridge strikes in New York State happened to catch video of a semi crashing into a Tonawanda bridge.

The video was captured by reporter Kristen Mirand of WKBW, who was on scene in Tonawanda reporting on New York Governor Kathy Hochul’s new campaign to reduce bridge strikes statewide through increased enforcement and education.

Cameras were rolling the moment that a semi truck struck the Young Street  CSX train bridge, sending debris flying.

No injuries were reported.

Mirand says that the bridge has been hit more than 60 times since 2000.
