    Dumb 11 Foot 8



    In the evening hours of March 28, a semi truck hit the 11foot8 bridge in quite a spectacular fashion, at pretty high speed scattering debris across the intersection. Luckily no one was injured! The busted semi trailer was wedged under the trestle for over 90 Minutes before the recovery operators were able to winch it out of the canopener's "jaws" ... the beast has been fed! This was crash # 145 since April 2008 ... and probably the biggest mess we have seen here, yet.

    On March 13, another rental boxtruck got stuck at the canopener and ended up in a bit of a wrestling match with the bridge. Right at that time a train crosses the trestle as well. After about 10 Minutes, the bridges finally lets the truck go, but the driver still has to deal with the impatient car drivers, before he can finally get his busted truck out of there. This was crash # 144 since 2008.

    If they keep having this problem, then why don't they raise the overpass?

    Feed the Canopener

    I love how they have two or three of the clearest, nicest color cameras nearby

    That gave him the momentum to prevent getting stuck.
