PLUNGES OFF JACKSON ROAD BRIDGE: Because the tractor remained on the road, no one was injured as this truck trailer toppled off a temporary bridge into Mill creek about seven miles west of here. The driver's name was not learned, but the trailer bore the name "Michigan Interstate Lines, Inc." The Mill creek bridge is one of the hazardous points of construction west of here, made worse by snow and ice.

Ye Old Editor Has His Say: April 25, 1942 Sadly, too few truck trailer drivers know their Holy Bible, else they would sense, beforehand, that it is nearly as difficult for a camel to pass through the needle's eye as it is for one of their behemoths to pass under the Ann Arbor Railroad viaduct over W. Washington St. Ignoring the "10 ft., 6 in." clearance sign thundering at him from the side of the viaduct, a truck trailer driver tried to bull his 11 ft. 8 in. truck through the opening. It wasn't even a tight fit (See photo).
