BROOKLYN - Community Board 15 is urging truck drivers to pay close attention to clearance signs after a tractor-trailer crashed into a low overpass in Midwood Monday.

The accident isn't the first time a truck has hit the subway overpass at the intersection of Avenue P and East 17th Street. The Community Board says the collisions persist despite numerous signs.

According to the board, truck drivers are the only solution since the train tracks cannot be raised and the road cannot be lowered.
