Van drives into bridge (imaginaton rquired)

Near where I live there is a busy intersection, with a flyover, tunnel entrance and main road all coming together. This has created some awkward side streets with low bridges.

I was walking past on a recent Saturday and did a double taken when I saw that a hire van had driven into the bridge. The most amazing thing was that the slope of the bridge relative to the road meant that the van had been lifted onto two wheels. The left hand side of the vehicle was in the air at an almost 45 degree angle. You can still see a few marks on the Low Clearance sign.

Note to self: must carry camera with me at all times.
