Traffic was briefly halted on Greeley Avenue in North Portland on Friday, June 02, at about 1 p.m. when a truck hauling an industrial-sized tank scraped the bottom of a pedestrian footbridge connecting Adidas’ North American headquarters.
According to reports, an eyewitness said the truck got stopped under the bridge because its enormous load couldn’t get under it.
