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.

The bridge was previously struck six times in July and August.

Square peg, round hole. I wonder what happens to the structural integrity of a bridge when it has been hit dozens of time by passing vehicles. Hmmmmm.
