    Alliance police: Semi-truck stuck under bridge because driver could not read signs


    ALLIANCE, Ohio - A semi-truck became stuck under an Alliance bridge because the driver claimed he could not read warning signs.
    The incident happened around 10:30 a.m. Wednesday at the railroad bridge on North Union Avenue.
    According to Alliance police, 31-year-old Tihomir Bezbradica was cited for failure to obey a traffic control device.
    The maximum height of a vehicle passing under the bridge is 12 foot 6, according to warning signs in the area. Bezbradica told police that he couldn’t read the signs because they are only in English and he is from the Ukraine

    This could have been prevented if the signs had Ukrainian translations on them....

    In Soviet Russia, you do not check height of truck, height of truck checks you.

    Dumbass. He should have told the officer on scene that he was delivering that bridge, and that he just ran out of fuel.

    Does anyone else see this happening more and more now that Mexico's truckers have free reign throughout the US?
