Great shot of a trucker "Doh!" moment Aaron.

Having been by that spot countless times, it's truly a Doh moment. That low viaduct is well signed at 10' 9".

"Titan", huh? Looks more like "Titanic"!

Who needs a sign? If the bottom of the bridge is 6 inches above your eyebrow, you're not going to make it!

There's got to be an obstruction rejection joke in here somewhere. :-)

@ Roy S: Great comment--I was thinking the very same thing. I've been under this bridge a number of times as well and it always seemed like a tight fit for an SUV. I can't imagine a trucker thinking he would fit under here. Excellent shot as well, really puts the whole thing in context with the train and the tow truck.

And the bridge is cursed by CN.

He obviously does not own the equipment he is driving.

"Are you stuck?" "Nope, I'm delivering a bridge."

I drive a truck. For a living. I know what he is feeling. Nice CN shot

I drove trucks for over 38 years and have been directed by my consignee to a similar location in Massachusetts. When I called her I asked her why she sent me the way she did and she said "Well, I go that way every day coming to work and I don't have any trouble". When I asked her what she drove she said "a VW Beetle". The authorities should make an electronic image of this photo and put it up near every bridge that is below 14 feet in clearance. Aaron you should submit this photo to the Federal Highway Safety Board for consideration of safety message of the year.

We have here in Cologne, Germany a very similar bridge, called Idiotenbr├╝cke: https://www.google.de/search?q=Idiotenbruecke+Koeln&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=UHY7UtCxOsH40gXWxoGwCg&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAQ&biw=1280&bih=922&dpr=1

That wasn't even close, folks!

Truck driver is probably a railfan. Saw that train with that zebra-striped SD60F and watched it until the last second... Crunch!

...the moment when you realized that it would probably be a good idea to look for other employment.

The GPS told me to go this way.
Posted by knine on September 22, 2013 
Yup, I've heard that one a few times. I always ask if they programmed it for tall truck instead of car.

Check out Google's "Street-View" here, the camera barely made it!
Posted by Aaron C. Schlegel on September 23, 2013 
Street View does give quite the perspective. Really cool when you look up under the bridge.
Posted by Ken Huard on September 24, 2013 
Not even close!

Trucks, Tow Trucks, and Trains Oh my!

Tow trucks, trucks, and trains oh my!

Maybe his GPS unit told him the bridge was a truck route, with that being said today's drivers just don't think, use common sense, or too lazy to check the directions before striking out, back in the old days I'd look at where I'm going on the map, ask the shipper for the best directions in a large truck, checking the map with the directions given, and wrote out a small diagram in which I stuck on the right corner of the drivers side window, besides paper maps always got me safely from Point A to Point B just fine,
