    What an idiot. He didnt see those multiple low bridge signs? Those low bridge signs stick out more to me than stop signs.

    Totally not the driver's fault. That bridge failed to get out of the way.

    Safe to assume he won't have a job after that.

    They also have signs all over the interstates up there for trucks to use Expressways, not Parkways.
