WESTWOOD, Mass., Aug. 25 (UPI) — Police in Massachusetts said a truck seen bursting upon colliding with a low train bridge was the fifth vehicle damaged at the underpass this year.

A video posted to YouTube by Lt. Leo Hoban of the Westwood Police Department shows the empty produce truck attempt to go through the 10-foot-6-inch tall underpass Thursday and burst when the top of the truck collides with the bridge.

Police said the roof of the truck was sheared off, but the driver was not injured.

Hoban shared a second video Monday showing a truck come to a stop when it collides with the same bridge. He wrote the video is “not as exciting as some.”

The bridge has been struck a total six times this year, police said.
