Truck Gets Stuck Under Railroad Overpass

- A rough go this morning for a semi truck driver in the city of Erie.

The driver of a cargo truck managed to make it underneath the West 14th and Sassafras Bridge but not without the trailer of the truck tearing in half and folding like an accordion.

The accident happened just after 9:20 this morning.

Erie police say the truck is 13 feet 6 inches tall and the bridge is 13 feet 5 inches....

.Police say the driver told them he normally takes this route but a slight incline in the road caused the trailer to catch the bridge and buckle.

The driver did not suffer any injuries.
