Another Semi Hits Pedestrian Overpass

Another Semi Hits Pedestrian Overpass

For the second time this week a semi has struck the pedestrian overpass at 108th and West Center Road.  Wisconsin trucker Roy Facklaf says he came off the interstate Wednesday afternoon and was attempting to turn right onto 108th Street.

Facklaf says he was paying attention to traffic and didn't see the sign saying "11 ft 10 in clearance at curb".  Facklaf says his trailer got caught on the bridge as he made his turn.

Facklaf believes a flashing light and a sign further back from the intersection telling truckers not to make a right turn would help avoid future accidents.
