Delivery lorry gets stuck under bridge in Harrogate

An Asda delivery lorry got stuck under a railway bridge in Harrogate this evening – 7 June 2016.

At 6:12pm, the lorry attempted the low bridge on Bower road, near to the Asda store, where they became lodged.

The police attended and set-up traffic control. They also interviewed and took a statement from the driver of the lorry. There were no injuries to the driver, other drivers or pedestrians.

Since it was a rail bridge, Network Rail attended and inspected the bridge. They confirmed that there was no damage and services will now be as normal. Services were interrupted for a time before the bridge structure had been assessed.

The lorry was reversed out of the bridge and taken back to the loading bay of the store, with the road re-opening at around 8:30pm
