AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - The Olive Road bridge – an accident-prone but sturdy span southwest of Augusta’s medical district – is the site of another crash.
Richmond County dispatchers said an accident was reported at 5:11 p.m. Tuesday at the notoriously low railroad overpass across Olive Road near White Road.
Photos on social media showed a box truck stuck under the bridge with a crumpled roof.
That’s typically what happens at the bridge, where a truck gets stuck at least a couple of times a year, often more.
CSX said Wednesday that the bridge had been inspected and determined safe for railroad operations.
