Bridge hit by lorry despite warning signs

Despite warning signs advising of the 3.9m clearance under the bridge, a lorry from Essen in North Rhine-Westphalia with a higher trailer tried to pass under the bridge at the junction of the Homburger Landstraße and the Frankfurter Landstraße, in the area known as “An den Drei Hasen”, last Tuesday, 11th December, 2012.

The trailer was caught by the bridge, with the damage caused to the trailer itself estimated at €8,300.
