Virginia State Police and personnel from the Virginia Department of Transportation were soon on scene, attempting to decipher the age-old square-peg-in-a-round-hole conundrum while unsuccessfully trying to locate where common sense had disappeared to.

A military convoy cruising through Virginia Beach confronted an unexpected delay at a busy intersection Monday when one of its vehicles decided to (unsuccessfully) challenge the clearly-displayed height restriction of an overpass.
Despite attempting to adhere to applicable advice by esteemed convoy expert and wordsmith, Ludacris, multiple attempts by the vehicle to roll out were unsuccessful.
Be the one to lodge a vehicle under an overpass and supply safety brief orators everywhere with more ammunition.
“If driving a 13-foot-tall vehicle, don’t try to drive under an overpass with a maximum height restriction of 12 feet, good to go?”
The incident, which reportedly occurred just before noon on London Bridge Road, created a multi-lane blockade that had the morale of those stuck in traffic falling down, falling down, falling down. (Sincere apologies.)
