Truck vs. Overpass, Philadelphia, 20 October 2004

12:09am, 20 October, 2004.
This truck had just passed under an overpass that was evidently
a few inches lower than the vehicle's original height.
Although the disassembly of the truck by the overpass produced
an alarmingly loud scraping noise sufficient to awaken a local
resident over a block away, its driver apparently just
pressed ahead, undaunted.
The traditional solution to an old "creative problem
solving" puzzle with a tall truck and a low overpass involves
letting a bit of air out of the tires, but I suppose brute
force can work, too.
