An oversized rental truck was damaged when it hit a low-clearance railroad bridge in Johnson City.
The crash at the Riverside Drive underpass in the village happened around 10.45am on Wednesday.
The southbound Penske truck crashed into the bridge, which is located just north of Grand Avenue.
A portion of Riverside Drive west of the Highway 201 flyover was closed for about an hour as workers from Wilcox Towing of Vestal attended to clearing the vehicle.
No injuries were reported in the incident. The roof of the truck appears to have sustained relatively minor damage. It was not known if the vehicle was transporting at the time.
Signs posted as you approach the bridge indicate a clearance of 10 feet 10 inches. The markings on the truck indicate a vehicle height of 12 feet 7 inches.
Penske’s rental website has a section with tips for “driving a truck safely.” He notes that the height of the truck is “visible in your side mirrors when you’re in the driver’s seat.”
The company also advises drivers to watch for low clearance warning signs “so you know of potential problems ahead.”
The name of the truck driver has not been released. It was unclear whether he would receive a ticket in connection with the accident.
