This Is What Happens When You Ignore The Bridge Height Signs

There is a website which is dedicated to the hilarious accidents of trucks that try to pass under the bridge which is lower than normal. The videos available on the website are indeed entertaining. But imagine watching the same videos in slow motion. The YouTube channel, Slow Mo Guys, have set up few slow-motion cameras on a low bridge to see what happens when a truck hits a bridge, frame by frame.

It is not a very pretty sight indeed. But luckily, the cargo box on a moving truck is made up of aluminum and plywood and can be torn away easily. However, the damage caused by such incidents is very extensive. You can easily imagine what happens here and it is also very satisfying to watch.
