Ford cars damaged after lorry gets stuck under bridge

A brand new fleet of Ford cars have been badly damaged after a lorry got wedged under a bridge, when trying to avoid traffic.

As reported by the Daily Mail, the driver had attempted to take a short cut to avoid queueing traffic at 8:30am on March 13, when it crashed into the 14ft 5inches Snowford Hill railway bridge in Long Itchington, Warwickshire.

The five Ford models on the top tier are said to have been badly crushed – an engineer from Warwickshire County Council is inspecting the extent of the damage, with a full report expected tomorrow.

By law, bridges less than 16ft 3inches must be signposted to show the maximum permitted vehicle height.

A Ford spokesperson was unable to comment but confirmed an investigation is currently taking place.

No one was injured in the incident.
