Why?
Rivers flow. Times like these when they are in flood they can flow very fast.

I am with John though, someone messed up really bad!!

I was joking!!!!!!!!

Looked like he was worried about not fitting through the hole and and tried to turn back, once he went sideways he was doomed.

Ow ow ow ... I think the bridge legs, have a sharp angled section to them to split the water flow, bet thats made a right mess of the hull too

Yes, looks like he was worried about air draft. If he only would have reversed further upstream....would have saved him a lot of troubles and damages.

7 ft of extra water should have told him something. Bloody awful boat handling when you look at it.
The sickening crunch of thousands of pounds worth of damage must have really made them feel very ill.....:(

Nil points on boat handling skills, what a numpty
