Tipperary Trucker Injured In Wales

Accident site in Wales

Calls for clearer warning signs come, following an accident involving a Tipperary truck driver who smashed into a railway bridge yesterday in Wales.

The lorry owned by Carey Glass International, latter based in Nenagh County Tipperary and Salford, Manchester, crashed just off Ffordd Penamser, one mile from Porthmadog at approximately 8.20am.

The driver was injured when the lorry got wedged under a 13ft 3ins high railway bridge. Local Firefighters removed the top canopy from the vehicle to release the lorry and clear the roadway.

Network Rail inspectors examined the bridge at 9.00am and reported same to be safe, leaving train services on the Cambrian Coast line unaffected by the incident.

Gwynedd residents were not surprised about this accident and have been expressing concerns about this low bridge now for a number of years.
