Truck gets stuck under Peace Street bridge in Raleigh
Posted July 15, 2014
Raleigh, N.C. — A tractor-trailer driver on Tuesday failed to clear the railroad bridge that spans Peace Street in Raleigh, and the trailer jammed underneath the structure.
No injuries were reported, but authorities blocked off the area while trying to figure out how to get the rig loose.
The bridge is the site of several similar accidents that have happened over the years when drivers fail to notice, or ignore, the posted height clearance. The most recent accident was in May, when a trailer crumpled and broke in half after hitting the overpass.
The trailer got lodged underneath, and authorities closed the road for several hours while it was removed.
