It looks like he had not checked the head height sign.     If he damaged that rail bridge, Tesco are in for one hell of a bill.
If you still have the feeling of control, you are not going fast enough!

Damn lucky there was no traffic or pedestrians around. A driver at Hinckley was killed when an oncoming truck hit an angled bridge like that one.

Looks like the driver would have gotten out ok, physically, but I hope he/she quickly recovers from the shock.
Don't take life too seriously, no one has ever gotten out alive!
