Truck Carrying Casket Gets Stuck Under Bridge

It's been the scene of a lot of tight spots in the past but this time there's a morbid twist.

A delivery truck carrying an empty casket got stuck under the Green street bridge in Longview this afternoon. The truck tried to pass under the 10 foot bridge, but just couldn't make it through.

The back of the truck was torn to pieces and the casket lay on it's side slightly damaged.

That bridge has been the scene of several similar accidents over the years including a motor home just a few weeks ago.
