If I don't respond to you, maybe I'm tired of nonsense. I don't need the last word like some of you do.
Most trucks that strike bridges overhead..... the truck usually loses.
In this instance, the overload permit was issued.
The driver is ultimately 100% responsible for knowing the weight, width and height of the trailer or cargo he is hauling.
The operator needs to know vehicle height and bridge height, respectively. no excuses.

Now for this specific case I am not automatically giving the driver a pass. If there are more details as to why it was his fault, please point out the post numbers. Otherwise I am going off the OP link and noting why the driver may not be at fault. In other words, the linked article is scarce enough on details that it really could go either way.
