Truck struck Northampton underpass


NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (WWLP) – A truck struck a railroad underpass near downtown Northampton Friday morning.

Our 22News crew could see a large box truck had struck the underpass on North Street.

The underpass has a low clearance of only 11 feet, while tractor trailers and some box trucks are generally a couple of inches taller than that.

Trucks striking low underpasses have been a fairly frequent problem at various locations in western Massachusetts, including Northampton, where the Main Street underpass has also been an issue.
