Truck crash causes Metro-North delaysPosted: Updated:
Metro-North’s New Haven line experienced delays this morning after a truck crashed into one of the line’s railroad bridges.
Police say a food truck was trying to make a delivery to a hospital when it struck the railroad bridge on Locust Avenue in Rye around 8:30 a.m.
The top part of the DiCarlo food delivery truck was almost completely sheared off, after the driver attempted to go under the 9-foot 9-inch bridge. The truck driver, who’s from Long Island, told News 12 off-camera that his commercial GPS took him on the route.
Service on Metro-North’s New Haven line, which runs right above the bridge, was delayed for about an hour as crews worked to remove the stuck truck. Regular train service has been since been restored. The MTA says an inspector has deemed the bridge safe.
There is no word yet if the truck driver got a citation.
