Auto Transport Truck Hits Railroad Trestle

I read this on Tyler Paper

An automobile transport truck smashed into an overhead railroad trestle on Loop 323 just south of Texas Highway 31 west about 10:40 a.m., sending two of the vehicles smashing into the street.

No injuries are reported. However, debris from the trestle fell onto a car that was traveling behind the transport truck.

Traffic is reduced to one lane while the accident site is being cleaned.

The trestle and truck were damaged by the impact. The transport truck was carrying new Chevrolet pickup trucks. Two of the trucks were knocked from the top level. Texas  Auto Transport Wreck

Anybody familiar with that area know how high that trestle is? I wonder if that load was chained or strapped down. It isn’t often you see a vehicle come all the way off let alone two of them.
