There's rail bridge in Spokane, WA that does this frequently also. That bridge is undefeated also.
HAHAhahahahahaha........ THAT was the funniest thing I've seen today
I heard a story (I was told it was a true story, but I have no proof) about a truck driver that did this very thing. The truck was hopelessly stuck under the bridge and one of those big tow trucks had to be called to get it out. When the tow truck driver pulled up to driver of the stuck truck, he smirked a superior-sort-of smirk and said "Get stuck?" to which the truck driver replied (with more colorful language than I can use here) "No, wise guy, I was hauling this bridge and ran out of gas."
That just makes the Equipment Manager in me cringe. Believe me when I say that no commercial driver wants to have THAT conversation with his boss.
We've got one a couple towns over that's done that a time or two.
That is one well built bridge to withstand all that abuse.
The good thing is there are most likely no repeat offenders.
You'd be surprised at the many bridges marked 13foot 8 inches, which would allow a normal semi to pass under. But then the city fathers have paved the streets several times, raising the road bed up a foot or so, and haven't bothered changing the signs.
Luckily I managed to dodge that bridge while delivering in downtown Durham. Although I did get run all over by another truck in Chapel Hill. The metal beam installed in front of the bridge is what the trucks actually hit. Nice touch there.
There's a railroad bridge, that is well above the roadway, but they still dug it out under the bridge..... so you go down, under the bridge, and then back up. When it rains badly , that low area will fill up with water....... and for some really stupid reason, people always seem to want to test their luck, and find out how deep it really is. About all you'll see (unless it's a van or tall truck) .... is the roof top of the car under the water.
We have a bridge near my hometown that the Coke truck smashed into. When asked, the driver admitted he didn't have the clearance listed on the sign, but that he'd gone under that bridge before with no problems. Of course, one must take into consideration that a fully-laden Coke truck sits lower than an empty one.
