Melbourne’s Legendary Montague St Bridge Has Claimed Another Victim

Melbourne’s Legendary Montague St Bridge Has Claimed Another Victim

The Montague St Bridge has absolutely decimated another vehicle, making it the second time to happen in four days.

It's clear drivers haven't learned their lesson when trying to tackle the monstrous bridge. Let this be another cautionary tale.

The latest victim, I mean, vehicle, was a cement mixer, whose driver obviously underestimated the truck's height and thought it could squeeze in yesterday (May 11).

Photos showed the aftermath of the attempt, in which the truck was completely squashed on all sides with the top of the cement mixer ripped off.

According to Vic Traffic’s Twitter, emergency services began directing drivers shortly after the accident occurred, as it led to many road closures.

The driver, who is in his 40s, was taken to hospital and is currently in a stable condition with only minor injuries to his upper body, according to Triple M.

A Twitter page dedicated to the light rail bridge posted a photo of the incident along with the caption: “Harden up?

“You're kidding, right? I'M THE HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION OF THE WORLD OF ALL TIME IN THE HISTORY OF EVER!!! 

“NO ONE - ABSOLUTELY NO ONE - TAKES ME DOWN!!!”

Wow…talk about being a sore winner.

However, this is the second accident to unfold in the past couple of days after a tourist campervan became wedged under the South Melbourne bridge over the weekend.

Following the accident, VicTraffic begged drivers to pay special attention to their car’s dimensions before ploughing their vehicle under the bridge.

They wrote: “Another week and another driver has hit the Montague Street Bridge!

“It is your responsibility to know how long, how heavy and how high your vehicle is. Check your dimensions BEFORE driving

“Please pay attention to the 5 warning signs, the gantries and the low clearance signs.”

Also, given the bridge has destroyed so many vehicles, a cheeky website titled 'How Many Days Since the Montague Street Bridge Has Been Hit' was created in its honour.

The tongue-in-cheek website, which records how many days an accident has occurred since a driver attempted to drive under the bridge, was created after the infamous 2016 Ballarat tour bus incident.
