Here's the video for crash #147 at the 11foot8 bridge

I've written about the 11foot8 bridge (aka the Can-Opener) quite a few times here on Boing Boing. Located in Durham, North Carolina, it's a 79-year-old railroad bridge that has a lower clearance than the height of many common commercial trucks. It's scraped the top off of 147 trucks since 2008, the year that Jürgen Henn installed a video camera to record the crashes. The latest victim of the bridge was a bucket truck. From the YouTube description:

On June 18, a bucket truck fell prey to the "monster of Gregson Street" … the driver said he was sure the vehicle would fit, but he was clearly mistaken. The bucket was pretty badly damaged and the "hinge" where the two arms connect hit the beam pretty hard and knocked down a bunch of old canopener debris. They stopped and checked out the problem and cleaned up a bit before carrying on.
