Boom truck damages bridge on NJ Transit AC rail line. Monica Malpass reports during Action News at 11 p.m. on July 28, 2017. (WPVI)

A boom truck struck an overpass so hard that it twisted a railroad track on the bridge above in Pennsauken, Camden County Friday afternoon.

It happened around 3:45 p.m. on River Road near Derousse Avenue.

A witness says the truck driver for Robinson Waste Disposal of Bellmawr did not realize his boom was raised, when he tried to make it under 13-point-8 feet of clearance.

There were no reports of any injuries.

The ACRL service will remain suspended at least through the weekend between Philadelphia and Cherry Hill.
