Bridge peels trucks

Make everything better by watching some DESTRUCTION

There's only one cure for Monday: wanton destruction. And because we're all really smashing chaps, we've decided to bring you just that, by way of a lorry-shaving bridge.

But this old railway crossing in Durham, NC, USA, isn't just an antidote to start-of-the-week misery - it's probably the strongest bridge... in the world. The old railway crossing's celebrating its 100th birthday this year (presumably by scalping a few trucks), which means it's even older than James.

Now watch as motorists repeatedly ignore the 11'-8' height limit signs...

Now share it...
