Truck camper hits railroad overpass

Low Underpass
A family from North Dakota loads their belongings into their truck after their camper was sheared off on the railroad underpass on N. 21st Street between Montana Avenue and Minnesota Avenue.

No injuries were reported but traffic was briefly shut down after a camper in the bed of a pickup truck hit a downtown underpass this afternoon.

Shortly before 2 p.m., Leo Cummings, 58, was driving a 1999 Ford pickup northbound on North 21st Street when he attempted to drive through a railroad underpass between Montana and Minnesota avenues, Billings Police Sgt. Neil Lawrence said.

A camper in the bed of the pickup was too tall and struck the bottom of the underpass, shearing it from the truck as it passed through. The underpass has an 8-foot clearance.

Cummings, from Newtown, N.D., was not issued any citations in the crash, Lawrence said.

The underpass was not damaged and traffic was flowing smoothly again by 3 p.m.
