Truck Flips in New Canaan

How will anyone get to Y now

NEW CANAAN -- The New Canaan Fire Department responded to a truck on its side at 11:20 Wednesday morning on Old Stamford Road near the Weed Street intersection.

According to a Metropolitan Transit Authority official, the 12-foot, 6-inch-tall truck tried to make it under the 12-foot, 3-inch-tall railroad bridge and ended up on its side. The sign warning truckers of the bridge states that vehicles taller than 11 feet, 3 inches, should not try to pass underneath.

Fire Department Lt. Tony Ryan said such incidents happen at this location at least twice a year.

He said there were no injuries.

The road will be closed indefinitely
