Tall trucks caught on video crashing into short bridge in Durham

DURHAM, N.C. — It happens a lot, but you sure don’t often see it caught on camera – a truck that’s too tall disintegrating when it hits an overpass that’s too low.

It happened the same day New York State announced testing of a new infrared system to prevent accidents like this.

There’s a low railroad trestle in Durham that gets hit often.

CNN’s Jeanne Moos reports on decapitated trucks in the video above.
