Police said Ishad Knight of Miami disregarded signs and hit the overpass Tuesday at Exit 27 near King Street in Rye Brook on the New York-Connecticut state line.
There is a growing danger on the road in the New York area. Trucks have been hitting overpasses at an alarming rate, causing delays on your ride to work.
The winding, tree-lined Hutchinson River Parkway was designed for the Ford Model T, not MACK trucks.
Tractor-trailers aren’t allowed on the Hutchinson River Parkway for good reason — they can’t fit under the overpasses. But that hasn’t stopped them from wandering onto the parkway and slamming into the structures.
