A van hit Ely railway bridge on Saturday morning (October 2) forcing it to close.
The van ended up wedged underneath the bridge.
A spokesperson for Cambridgeshire police said: “Thankfully, the driver had no injuries and the bridge was not damaged.
The driver has been reported for driving without due care and attention.”
This is not the first time the bridge has had to close due to vehicles getting stuck under it.
Earlier this year, a van flipped onto its side after striking the bridge.
