Overpass scraped by oversized load

Overpass scraped by oversized load

Another truck hit the Glover Road highway overpass in Langley Monday afternoon.

According to the provincial Ministry of Transportation, the truck was carrying a van-body that makes up the trailer part of a traditional semi-trailer.

However, the box was loaded up on a high-boy deck, raising its height and making it several centimeters overheight.

The truck smacked into the overpass in the early afternoon but managed to scrape through. The driver stopped before trying to get under the CN Rail overpass to the east.

Commercial Vehicle and Safety Enforcement Crews were on scene after the collision.

The Glover Road overpass has been hit several times in the past by overheight truck loads, in some cases damaging it to the point where it needed reconstruction and reinforcement.
