Around 6 a.m. on Friday, a truck driver from Columbus, OH, found out what happens when you ignore the "Low Clearance" sign on a railroad bridge in Canton after disregarding the "posted warning signs of height restrictions.:

Transit Police report the roof of the trailer was torn plumb off, its side walls buckled, and spilled its contents all over the road.

After an inspection, commuter-rail inspectors declared the bridge the winner and train service resumed.
