Durham NC - 11'8" bridge

I've seen quite a few of the trucks that hit the metal pole before the RR bridge on the channel called 11foot8.com, but first I've seen with a railroad worker nearby. After the crash, you can see what looks like a track inspector coming down the embankment to check out the damage:

Most of the trucks were rentals. Penske took several hits. Methinks some people didn't get their deposit back.
