Earlier Report: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

A van has became stuck under a low bridge in Broughton this morning. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The van driver appears to have misjudged the gap under the A55 flyover bridge which straddles Broughton Hall Road. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Police are on the scene and the road is currently closed on both sides of the bridge. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Laura who sent the picture said the incident happened around 11.30am. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The low bridge which sits just 7ft 6 inches above the road is regularly hit by vehicles who’s drivers fail to see or understand the warning signs prior to driving under the bridge. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Last August a campervan was written after the driver smashed into the bridge, a campervan also became lodged under the bridge two months earlier. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
