Crash lorry in bridge drama

A LORRY driver crashed in Station Road, Mirfield – trying to avoid a low bridge. The driver heading from Huddersfield Road realised he might not make it under the bridge carrying the railway lines and swerved into the roadside. His vehicle hit a telegraph pole and the driver was unsure if the cables it carried were live or not. He alerted fire crews and police, but was unhurt. The road was closed for a short time.
