Heads Up! Watch a Low-Hanging Bridge Defeat Numerous Trucks
Unless you’re driving a truck or bus, you can pretty much ignore the signs whichÂ warn how tall upcomingÂ bridges are.Â But it turns out that many truck drivers also ignore these signs, and as you’ll see in this video compilation, they often pay a price for it!
That’s becauseÂ in Durham, North Carolina,Â there’s an 11 foot 8 inch bridge in the city which has been ripping the tops offÂ oversizeÂ vehicles for years.
Local man JÃ¼rgen Henn set up a camera and began filming the oftenÂ humorousÂ collisions. As you can see, folks in rental box trucks are most often the victims of the bridge’s lowÂ clearance. However, professionalÂ truck and bus drivers also fall right into the bridge’s clutches.
Yup, this scrappy little bridge isÂ undefeated. Hence Henn’s perfect soundtrack choice: Bill Conti’s ‘Gonna Fly Now,’ Â the theme to ‘Rocky.’
