Quite a few years ago, we had a railroad bridge over rt 45 South of us at Norris City Il. It was marked at something silly like 10.5. When in reality in the center it was 14.0. But the road when down about 3 ft where it went under it. You could go under it with a straight truck, and even a 28 ft van trailer. There was a way around for trucks. My Father-in-law had got under it with even a 34 ft trailer. Bottom line one night he had a 48 ft van, and he tried to go through. We got the call and went down to get him and it was a sight to see. He had made it 1/2 the way through and was caught good. It destroyed the trailer, and had beat him up pretty good. I doubt he had his seat belt on.
