Patrolman Roy George with the Chatham Borough Police Department investigated the accident on Watchung Avenue at the New Jersey Transit overpass at about 11:50 a.m. on Sept. 25, police said.
George found a truck driven by Wilfredo Cadiz, 60, of Flushing, N.Y., attenpted to pass underneath the bridge, but became lodged because the truck was too tall, according to police.
Cadiz was able to back out from underneath the bridge, police said.
Police issued Cadiz a summons for careless driving, according to police.
The bridge was previously struck six times in July and August.
