Speeding truck runs light and pops a wheelie at the 11foot8 bridge

Added by AutomotiveUploads
On Monday, Sept 18, the driver of this rental truck ignored the 25 MpH speed limit and all low-clearance warnings only to provide a solid meal for our hungry canopener. The impact was so powerful that the truck popped a wheelie and tore off the entire roof, before getting jammed under the trestle.

Police closed Gregson St for a short while until the debris was removed. Then they re-opened the right lane. The truck was stuck under the trestle for about an hour until a tow truck was able to winch it out from its predicament.

The Piedmont train, which runs between Charlotte and Raleigh, was also delayed by this incident. Apparently the conductor announced on the train that the "canopener" bridge in Durham was hit again, and that the old trestle would have to inspected before the train could cross.

Here is the footage of the crash. Enjoy! And drive safely.
