The driver, Lance Chandler Johnson III, of Garner, appeared to have simply underestimated how much room his truck would need to clear the overpass, according to the Raleigh Police Department report on the wreck.
The truck got stuck under the 12-foot, 4-inch-high bridge, and the impact peeled back the roof of the truck. The impact did not damage the bridge, police said.
Johnson was not injured.
A lane of traffic was blocked between 6:30 and 8:30 a.m. after while a tow truck worked to extricate the truck.
