OWATONNA — What started out with a truck getting its trailer stuck beneath a railroad bridge in Owatonna Wednesday morning ended with that same trailer catching fire less than 90 minutes later.

Shortly before 11 a.m., the tractor-trailer, owned by Schilling Supply Company of La Crosse, Wis., was traveling westbound on Mineral Springs approaching Grove when the vehicle — or most of it — went under a railroad bridge, said Sgt. Deanne von Wald of the Owatonna Police Department.

    Replace the bridge says si552di??

    How about, knowing the height of your trailer or vehicle and not go around crashing into bridges...that would be a wiser choice!

    Thankfully, no one was injured, this easily avoidable situation, certainly could have been much more worse that it turned out.

    How many more strikes will it take to get that bridge replaced? A pool has been started....

    Clearly, the truck driver didn't comprehend the well marked "height restriction" for vehicles to safely pass under the bridge.

    What a way to have to go back to driver, English language and mathematics refresher courses!
