Truck driver following GPS wedged in U-turn underpass

Don’t believe every thing you hear… even if the voice telling it to you is the computerized one of your GPS system. A truck driver realized that lesson the exhausting way today after blindly following his GPS resulted in his truck being firmly wedged under the overpass of a highway U-turn in Nonthaburi.
A fifty six yr previous Thai man was the driving force of a giant delivery truck that is over three metres tall and mentioned he was making a delivery to the south of Thailand from Thanyaburi. บริการติดตั้งโซล่าเซลล์ราคาถูก claimed to only be listening to the GPS which directed him to drive his truck down a highway U-turn exit underneath the Klong Bangkok Noi bridge.
Not thinking about the big peak of his truck, he adopted his GPS without question and drove proper past the signal that warned that the underpass had a clearance top of two metres ninety centimetres and that vehicles have to be shorter than that to squeeze via.
His truck was not. The 10 wheeler truck did not make it under the first overpass and quickly became wedged partially under the concrete barrier, tilted sideways with half its wheels lifted off the bottom. The Bang Kruay police have been alerted of the truck accident and headed to the scene of the U-turn to assist.
A giant tow truck was called in, and was able to pull the truck free after 15 minutes of struggling. The tall truck was pulled backwards out of the underpass and moved aside, allowing the free move of traffic to proceed.
It might be worse though.. it could be caught in a wheelie position, like a Durian truck in July!
