Keep on stuckin': Infamous low Durham bridges claim another truck

DURHAM, N.C. (WTVD) -- Durham's infamous low-flying bridges have claimed another victim. This time it's a delivery truck hitting the railroad bridge over Roxboro Street entering downtown Durham.

A white box truck from P and V Delivery became wedged under the bridge at the height of the evening rush hour Wednesday.

The driver tried to squeeze in under the first bridge despite a relatively new warning system telling drivers of tall trucks to turn so they don't get stuck.

Durham police responded and a crew let air out of the tires to get the truck unstuck.

Another railroad bridge in Durham has snared dozens of trucks at the intersection of South Gregson Street between West Peabody and Pettigrew streets.

Jurgen Henn set up cameras in his office in April 2008 and routinely posts videos of stuck trucks on his website.
