A Recology CleanScapes truck hit the side of the eastbound Interstate 90 overpass over Front Street North on March 13.
The company hauls trash in parts of Issaquah.
The lift that slides a trash bin off the truck was in the up position, and it tore a large hole in the bridge girders. Crumbled concrete was strewn about and a large hole was gouged in the pavement from the overhead force that stopped the truck.
That force was so great that it bent the cab of the truck all the way forward and it slammed into the pavement.
