    That truck wasn’t even close to fitting.

    I’m guessing, that was CNG-powered?

    Sure hope the driver got out of that thing OK.
     
    Boondock and JoeyJunk Thank this.

    it's a miracle the driver got out...!!!!

    You would think Republic, having experience with the route being that it's local, would warn the FNG that, "Hey, our trucks don't fit under that bridge." I would have assumed a local garbage truck has a pretty specific route.

    When I went through orientation at the PST terminal, just outside of Chicago, they gave us a map with all the low bridges on it and warned that topping a trailer meant instant termination.

    That guy is lucky to be alive.
