Bridge too far

•On reading the story about the stuck van in Co Offaly (Irish Independent, November 29), I was reminded of a similar incident here on our local Merritt Parkway.

A truck got the shorter cab part through a bridge over that highway all right, but the higher part behind him was stuck and damaged.

When the cop arrived to take down the particulars, the truck driver told him: "See officer, I was just delivering that bridge there and I ran out of gas."
