For years I thought that low-ass railroad trestle in Durham, North Carolina — the one meticulously covered by 11foot8.com — had a monopoly on the destruction of unsuspecting trucks. It turns out it has quite the rival in Massachusetts!

You may remember the bridge in Westwood, Mass. where a crash resulted in thousands of lobsters getting spewed onto the pavement. That bridge struck again recently. And it turns out it’s got a way worse track record than we thought.

As our friends over at Carscoops reported, the 10 foot 6 inch trestle just took out its fourth truck this year alone (that’s considered a good year for them!) and that 16 have been destroyed in the last 12 months.

I guess you could blame the bridge, but I’d be more inclined to blame people who ignore the signs or don’t err on the side of caution. Watch out for those low-ass bridges, America!
