Big-rig stuck under railroad overpass in Manchester Township



A tractor-trailer gets stuck under a railroad overpass in York County on Monday morning. Police responded to the Norfolk Southern Railroad overpass along Woodland View Drive in Manchester Township just after 11:30 a.m.


A big-rig hauling a 53-foot trailer was headed westbound when it got stuck underneath the concrete bridge. Police say the tractor-trailer was more than 2-feet over the posted height clearance sign.

The driver, Nykil Rashad, 30, of Jonesboro, GA, failed to realize his rig was too tall before it became stuck.


The tractor-trailer is owned by Interstate Distributor Company of Tacoma, Washington and was en-route to a business in the industrial park, police said.

No injuries were reported.

The road was closed for several hours as the rig was removed. It has since been reopened.
