It happened about midnight when the truck traveling southbound couldn't clear the 11 feet 5-inch overpass at East 90th Street.

While the driver appears to be OK, the truck wasn't so lucky. A photo provided to PIX11 shows the truck broken apart with cargo in plain sight and stuck under the overpass.

The FDR is among the several parkways in New York City with commercial vehicle restrictions.
