    I'm pretty sure that was his last day at con-way. It amazes me that this kind of stuff happens all the time, just wondering what the heck he was thinking its clearly posted. If you want to see a bunch of these go to youtube

    Wow... it does amaze that this happens so often... I am so hyper aware of clearences... I still duck my head .. and the are times when my stomach jumps when I read "CAUTION LOW CLEARENCE" .. even though it is one I have been under several times before... it just amazes me that a driver could just drive head on under...

    Glad no one was hurt... with the exception of the drivers career...

    Also.. just because it was a Con-Way trailer doesnt mean it was a Con-Way driver... I work for Werner and we have a dedeicated account that only pulls Con-Way frieght and often pull their trailers....
    I really hope it was not a werner driver... if so, the driver will be fired.... we have gotten a few qualcomm messages about low clearences....

    But, the other driver on the CB radio told him, "It's ok driver, trucks run through there all the time."
