Too-Tall Box Truck Gets Very Stuck

No injuries were reported.

The box truck driver told Radnor Township police that he is familiar with the area and often goes under the railroad overpass, but that today he was in a different truck than the one he usually drives. The box truck hit an I-beam and caused significant damage to the structure of the overpass. The incident is still under investigation. King of Prussia Road was shut down for hours while crews worked to remove the struck truck. The railroad overpass is a frequent target for truck strikes. It was hit by trucks as recently as December 4 and November 16. Radnor police say that this is the fortieth bridge strike since 2008.
