Craziest Claim of the Month – “A (Too) Tall Order”

This month’s craziest claim involves an equipment company in charge of hauling a large piece of excavating equipment through a rural area. The company had done its due diligence and all clearances had been checked before transport. The driver was prepared and ready to make the delivery.

All was going well until the equipment hit an overpass, damaging the bridge, the machine and the trailer. As it turns out, the street had been repaved several times over the years which changed the elevation of the road itself. Unfortunately, the overpass was never re-measured and re-marked and no new clearance signs were put in place, leaving the poor driver clueless about the actual height of the bridge.
