A semi truck driving in Milwaukee was crushed under a particular train overpass Monday.

The truck pictured above was carrying 42,000 pounds of potatoes when the conductor attempted to drive underneath a train bridge on Monday morning in the Bay View neighborhood of Milwaukee.

Witnesses on scene said that the maximum height sign on the overpass was not visible far away due to the snow.

The truck is 13' 6".

There was no initial word about anyone being hurt.
