A portion of East 11th Street underneath a railroad overpass in Chattanooga has been closed after a truck struck the structure and shifted it a couple of inches.
The "Roll Off" truck, which had 'Tennessee Waste Haulers' on the door, had its arm extended as it passed under the bridge. The rails at the top were moved, according to first responders.
The area has been closed until damage to the structure can be assessed. It's unclear who owns the overpass.
A couple of railroad spikes were seen in the road way and the foundation showed signs of damage.
In one spot, there was a gap between the foundation and where grass had been growing — evidence of where the foundation shifted, according to police.
The driver, who has not been identified, was transported to a local hospital. It's unclear what his condition is and if he will be cited.
