3:04pm–#Bridgeport CT–A city worker was injured and taken to the hospital after his city truck hit the railroad overpass at Railroad and Bostwick Avenue this afternoon.   Bridgeport’s Public Facilities Director Jorge Garcia was quickly on scene and told me his worker was pretty banged up in the incident.   EMS attended to him and transported him to the hospital.

 

The truck was in the area with pothole repair and it would have the dumping bed up at times.  Jorge and the police department are investigating why the dumping bed was in the up position when it approached and hit the overpass.  Jorge said the truck was a 1989 truck that was scheduled for replacement.  With the bent frame it is certain the truck will be totaled.    Representatives arrived and are investigating the extend of the damage to the bridge.  Railroad traffic is passing but at a greatly reduced speed.
