PHOTO: Residents Outraged After Truck Hits Battle Creek Bridge
Everyone who knows Battle Creek knows all about the Upton Bridge and how it is constantly (seemingly) being hit by trucks who are too tall to pass underneath. Such was the case yesterday when an ice truck got stuck underneath, causing a minor traffic delay while authorities tried to remove the truck from under the bridge safely.
Photos of the accident emerged on Facebook as one man posted a picture Kristy Warren took as she was driving nearby:
As more people became aware of the situation, many Battle Creek residents expressed their frustrations in the comments section about not only the driver, but how this seems to be a re-occurring thing:
If this continues to happen, I wonder if the city will start thinking of reconstructing, or possibly re-building the bridge to extend the height of it. If not, more harsh penalties may start to surface for truck who are unable to clear the bridge to avoid further damage.
