Lorry Driver Uses Bridge to Slice Roofs Off Range Rovers

By Gary Cutlack on at

A lorry driver has had a worse and sadder day than is usual even for lorry drivers, after managing to not notice that a bridge in Perth was substantially lower than the top of his load.

Unfortunately, he wasn't carrying a load of hay or bubbles or sofa cushions. The transporter was packed with non-flexible brand new Range Rovers on their way to garages, with four or five of the luxury cars now roofless and reduced to write-off status. That is quite an unfortunate day at work.

But what's really important here is the bridge, as bridges have to outlast such transient modern things as cars and lorry drivers. Network Rail says it has been inspected and is fine. [STV via ITV News]
