Truck hits overpass on Long Island

Even with a sign showing a bridge height of 10' 5" this truck just smashes right into the bridge.

OOS:

When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.

I saw the yellow 10-5 sign just past the 13-3 sign, and in the shade of the bridge. it could have been a bit better placed to be more visible, but by the time the white 10-5 sign just before the bridge was readable I doubt it would have been possible to stop in time.

He should have been paying more attention, but the sign makers could have placed the yellow warning sign a bit better.
