the bus was brand new with only few thousand km's. insurnce company was very happy
btw, i remember that article. driver was experienced, as said one of the best in that company, not drunk, and he never took that route. he didn't know why did he go there.
the boss of the company told that he wouldn't fire him, he was generally too good driver, beside that stupid accident.
it is actually one of those proves that stupid things could happen to anyone.

he was not reversing nor road ascents, he released some air from the tyres

similar was a tragic accident with 2 victims in Budapest, February 2006. On the expressroad leading to Ferihegy airport, the top of a Serbian bus was torn down by a height-limit gate. What is strange that the gate was after the underpass, which the bus went through without problems. The gate before the underpass was demolished earlyer by another vehicle...







The driver didn't pay attention to the hight-limit sign:

omg, now i understand why those height measuring limitators are usually made of some light nylon material. this hungarian height limitator is really a limitator!

Maybe he should give some lessons to this busdriver in Norway:




The guy tried to make a u-turn due to a traffic accidents 300 meters ahead. He got stuck, and ended up blocking the road for all, even the paramedics on their way to the real accident. They had to climb past the bus, and walk to the accident site. This happened on a major national road. IQ-check, please!

Not funny, but stupid: here (it's on liveleak.com and I don't know how I could directly add the clip on SSC).

Poor planning by the bridge makers. The height of those trucks is standard, they just should have built the bridge a little higher.

Maybe it wasn't standard at the time the bridge was built. You'd be surprised how old a lot of bridges are.

But you'd think that after so many incidents they'd consider increasing the height of the bridge .

Increasing the height of a bridge isn't as simple as you may think...

Yeah exactly, it is much easier to adapt road under it even if it is just a few cm.

Or they simply do not have money to do either solution (a.k.a. the American way).

Could be an error on the height sign. That was a problem at the northern approach to the Lions Gate Bridge connecting Vancouver and North Vancouver. Ministry of Transportation officials thought there was more overhead clearance than there really was. Trucks traveling west along Marine Drive would get stuck. The signs have been corrected.
