5 Unfortunate Truck-Overpass Encounters

When it comes to driving big trucks, reading signs is paramount to success.
Most drivers willfully ignore posted height signs. There's not much risk involved when it comes to driving a sedan under a bridge that is only 11 feet high.

When a truck tries to go under a bridge that it's too big for, the result is hilarious, to say the least. Continue below to check out some of the greatest truck-overpass fails ever documented on video.
