AN anti-Scott Morrison campaign trailer has been stopped in its tracks after hitting a Wynnum rail bridge, crushing a picture of Scott Morrison’s face.
The trailer hit the low lying 2.8 metre rail bridge on Pine Street about 3.45pm Sunday.
The driver of the ‘Mr Morrison, your time’s running out’ placard quickly rang police to notify them of the road blockage.
Queensland Police and emergency services were not required to attend the scene and no-one has been charged.
The poster bears the logo of the Queensland Nurses and Midwives Union.
While no one was hurt during the incident, online comments on the Wynnum What Facebook page have taken the opportunity to point fun the major party leaders.
“I’m sure Labor will pledge money to fix this overpass,” Andrew Hodgkinson said.
“Mr Shorten you’re running out of height.”
Mark Kaenpfe commented saying “this is Labor telling us the Liberals do a bad job”.
“If Labor can’t drive a truck how can they run the country,” Wayne Barker said.
The Pine St rail bridge sits at 2.8m high and one local said that vehicle hitting the bridge “happens regularly”.
“The low lying bridges of Wynnum claim their next victim,” Jual Robert Butler said.
“They’ve been chewing up trucks and trailers for decades.”
