Why don't they just drop air out of the tires so they drop down lower and can clear? Aee that happen a lot with semis.

General consensus is that either the conductor used the wrong line or was directed to the wrong line where the bridge was too low.

But good ol' 11'8" bridge might have a southern cousin now.

Hard telling without knowing where this was. I’m guessing it falls on someone in planning who sent cars a route that they shouldn’t have. We have a bridge in southern Illinois that if you have cars over 19’1” you have to go 10mph because it’s tight enough that any bouncing would scalp them.

Years back they did that to some auto racks in Cicero but the cars weren’t really damaged. They sold them and a lady died in one of them from something completely unrelated. Somehow they knew the car had been involved in a bridge incident in transport so they sued the dealer or manufacturer and I believe they won the suit.

They hit the same bridge with a double stacked container that happened to have Nike’s in it. Passerby’s saw the orange boxes strewn about and word spread quickly. I’m told it was madness with people on the tracks scrambling to find a matching right and left shoe in their size :rofl:.
