EXPRESSWAY IS CLOSED AFTER RIG'S ROOF IS SHEARED

The LaSalle Expressway from the north Grand Island bridge area to 77th Street was closed for three hours Tuesday when the roof of a tractor-trailer was sheared off as it traveled onto the Robert Moses Parkway under the bridge, Trooper Tony Palmer said.

Dean H. Roop, 36, of Beaver Creek, Ohio, the driver, was charged with driving a prohibited vehicle and exceeding bridge capacity clearance by Trooper Kenneth White,
Palmer said.

The accident occurred shortly after 4 p.m. The roadway was closed an hour later and was reopened by 8:30 p.m. after debris from the accident and the rig were removed from the road, Palmer said.
