Oversized Load Too Tall for Overpass

05-08-06 - Traffic was backed up north of the Red River Monday afternoon after an oversized load was too tall to make it under an overpass.

The incident happened around 1 p.m. near the Platter exit in the northbound lanes of Highway 75. Troopers say a truck driver heading toward Arkansas was carrying a water tank and the tank was too tall to clear the Leavenworth overpass and it hit the bridge and slid off the trailer.

No other cars were involved.
