As per the statement of Port Jervis Police Chief – William Worden, the truck driver from Ohio was driving in rainy weather conditions when he approached an overpass that was clearly marked at a height of 12-feet-8-inches. There was another sign indicating the clearance height as 13-feet-8-inches.

According to the chief, the driver was uncertain about whether his vehicle could safely pass under the overpass, so he stopped in the middle of the roadway to assess the situation.
