Troopers identified the driver as Zhi Li, 64, of South El Monte, Ca. No one was hurt.

Li was traveling north on Carlton Road just before 1 p.m. when he failed to heed the low height sign for the railroad bridge, state police said. Troopers ticketed him.

The bridge’s posted clearance is 10 feet, 1 inch.

The truck was carrying batteries. None spilled, state police said.

A state police spokeswoman did not have further information on the crash.

The crash closed the stretch of Carlton between Kinns Road and Van Patten Drive Tuesday afternoon for the removal.
