Low clearance can be a real challenge for a truck driver. Especially inexperienced drivers of rental boxtrucks seem to be quite oblivious to the warning signs. So frequently do trucks crash into the 11-foot-8 railroad bridge at Gregson and Peabody in Durham, North Carolina, USA, that the railroad company installed a crash beam in front of it.
This is a compilation of 13 crashes at the railroad bridge.

BEAVERCREEK, OH — A 19-year-old Mason man driving south on Interstate 675 on Monday morning near the Indian Ripple Road exit crashed his car into an overpass, breaking the car into pieces and shutting down traffic for five hours.
The driver has been identified as Brennan S. Eden. He was undergoing surgery as of 4 p.m. Monday.
The specific cause of the crash has not yet been determined, but Ohio State Highway Patrol Lt. Marty Fellure said crash investigators are looking into whether speed played a factor. The investigators also will test for alcohol, which is a routine procedure.
Eden was seriously injured and flown to Miami Valley Hospital via a CareFlight helicopter, according to Fellure.
The accident happened about 7:15 a.m. Monday, Aug,. 23. Eden was driving a 1985 Pontiac Firebird south along the highway when the car went left of center and struck a culvert, which launched the car into the air until it struck the Wagner Road overpass. The Firebird disintegrated into many pieces. Eden was ejected and came to rest on the right berm of southbound I-675.
Investigators don’t know how fast Eden was driving but suspect he was traveling in excess of the 65 mph speed limit.
