Truck Driver Runs Afoul Of Bridge On His First Day On The Job

A rookie trucker had a rough go of it this morning when he became stuck under a New York bridge.

The incident happened just after 10 a.m. in the city of Tonawanda, New York. Twenty-four year old Canadian truck driver Kirisanthan Senathi crashed into the Young Street CSX bridge, which is clearly marked with signs stating that the clearance is 11’6″. No injuries were reported, but the crash did serious damage to Senathi’s truck.

Senathi told officers from the City of Tonawanda Police Department that today was his first day on the job.

Senathi will be cited for the incident.
