Commercial truck damages Galloping Goose overpass/bridge on 6 Mile Rd.
Six Mile Rd has been closed to traffic to allow crews to repair the overpass that supports the Galloping Goose Bridge.
View Royal Fire Chief Paul Hurst says a Slegg delivery truck driver forgot to lower a crane and struck the overpass:
" A truck coming down 6 Mile Rd., unfortunately the crane, the boom, was still up from a delivery, hit the Galloping Goose cycling bridge behind us. Caused significant damage to the bridge , and as you can see significant damage to the truck."
The truck's frame was bent and pushed down onto the wheel making it difficult to move. There was a fuel leak -- but it was quickly contained. The driver was not injured.
The bridge itself has re--opened to cyclists and pedestrians. But 6 Mile Rd. was closed to allow crews time to repair the damage.
