Box Truck Crashes Into Henry Hudson Parkway Overpass
A Box Truck had to be pulled out from under the Riverdale Avenue overpass of the Henry Hudson Parkway Southbound direction. This tied up traffic for hours as only one lane was open at times until the truck which was to high to go below the parkway underpass. That is the reason signs are posted at all overpasses on the HHP, and the reason trucks are not allowed on the HHP. You can see in the photo above the damage to the top of the truck. In the foreground on the parkway south NYC DOT workers are cleaning up the debris on the parkway, and checking the overpass for any damage.
Below is a close up view of the extent of the damage to the box truck as the topp of the truck has been sheared off.
