MANSFIELD — A low-lying bridge stood its ground against a rental truck in Mansfield Tuesday morning.

The accident happened around 10:20 a.m. at the New England Central Railroad Bridge over Ct. Rt. 275.

The driver of the truck was not injured in the accident.

Viewer Peter McCarty sent FoxCT some pictures from the scene.

“Notice what someone spray painted of the bridge before today. ‘Free yourself from this.’ It’s fitting for what happened,” McCarty said.
