    Driver: "Honestly, officer, I was supposed to deliver this overpass to right here, I swear!"

    Officer: "Then what's the beer for, driver?"

    Driver: "To celebrate getting the overpass lined up just right the first time! Enjoy."

    An insurance adjuster at the scene told 12 News the truck was too tall to make the clearance.

    12News reportedly replied "No #*&%$".

    I'm surprised they aren't already blaming GPS and saying it should be outlawed for all truckers. It would be better if it was good ole fashioned driver stupidity.

    i love how its a werner truck...and i love how that picture shows a big 12'6 sign, god what a moron.

    I wonder what the tractor looks like. Hopefully it's a midroof truck and just needs a new fairing!

    I bet they dont even fire him. I bet they put a scrap of metal on the roof of the tractor and give him a load to indianapolis to have a talk with Trent in safety..haha.... ;)
