Bridge Bashing Flips Van

02/2/15

Bradford, Yorkshire, UK

A van mounted aerial lift flipped onto its side after hitting a bridge yesterday in Bradford, Yorkshire, UK.

We have very little information on what happened, apart from the fact that as the van mount tried to pass under the bridge it struck it and flipped over. The bridge carries a railway line, so Network rail shut rail traffic down for an hour and a half while it checked the structural integrity of the bridge. No one was injured in the incident.
