Video: Digger hits bridge on A180 (updated)
A LORRY carrying a JCB digger crashed as it tried to travel under a bridge on the A180.
One lane of the eastbound carriageway remained closed between Immingham and Stallingborough this morning, following the accident at about 4.45pm yesterday.
It is understood that the lorry’s load was too big to pass under the bridge.
The digger was badly damaged, and damage was also caused to the bridge.
