Photos: 28-Wheel Truck Gets Stuck On Railroad Tracks In Cantonment

March 17, 2023

A 28-wheel truck became stuck on the railroad tracks at a Cantonment crossing late Friday morning.

It happened at the Eden Lane crossing at Highway 95A. The low-bottom trailer hauling concrete crushing equipment bottomed-out on the tracks.

    They have places to dump concrete for free.can not imagine how much money it will cost. Just doesn’t make sense to me unless it’s a foot in the door for a permanent place . Being. They want out of pensacola. People do the math.

    Titus: The company doing the concrete crushing will have minimal impact on the neighborhood, mainly noise, only during the daylight hours.
    The dust will be minor due to “misting” while crushing to keep dust at a minimum.
    Same as when the are demoing a house in a tight neighborhood.
    The county only issued this permit because all things have been taken into consideration for the residents.
    Just some info to be better informed.
    Have a blessed day

    He could have gone thru Virecent. Most roads in this area are not a dead end!
    What is that machine used for?

    The Driver was bringing the concrete crusher to a company that is off of south Virecent road. If ya’ll remember the story about a month ago about the company getting a temporary 45 day concrete crushing permit, they a suppose to only run it for 2 weeks. So they are getting ready to (Make Alot of Noise and dust) concrete crushing. I hope the horse farm that borders the area are watching out for the dust that could really injure the horses. And as usual the business wins. The residents that live near the crusher are just going to put up with noise and dust. the company already has water run off problems and flood the road and contaminants ( clay and dirt) run into the water shed.

    Most Americans: Why do I have to learn algebra? I’ll never use this in real life.

    Real Life: Hold my beer.

    I wonder how he was going to turn the truck around to leave since every road is that neighborhood is a dead end.

    Well,I’m going to defend the truck driver this time! When they worked on the tracks the last time to replace a track or whatever it was, the workers did a lousy job putting it back the way it was after they fixed it the time before that! Period!

    Look out M…….

    If the crossing is going to be blocked JB would like his crew to do the blocking.

    And yes. Most anyone would have known what the outcome of this would be.

    M, now regarding your comment. I am a railroad worker and I get rather sensitive to truck drivers doing this (happens way more than it gets reported) and putting my safety and that of my co workers in jeopardy. He knew that truck was low to the ground.

    To the person that wanted to know how they would get the truck out. the easiest way would be to jack up the back end and put cribbing under the tires and drive it forward.

    @JB JB, you seem almost eager to jump on the drivers. When hauling permitted loads such as the one pictured, Florida DOT issues a prescribed route which the driver and escorts MUST follow. I have no way of knowing whether he was following this prescribed route or not, but I’d give him the benefit of the doubt. We all should remember that everything we have had a ride in a truck somewhere on the way to us.

    These truck drivers really are something else!

  15. JJ on March 17th, 2023 2:33 pm

    I think someone needs a taller truck

  16. Me on March 17th, 2023 1:07 pm

    Wonder why that truck would be going down that road? How did they get it unstuck?
