    SEATTLE - A driver in a U-Haul truck accidentally crashed into the Arboretum Aquaduct on Saturday.

    The 103-year-old structure, with a less than 10-foot clearance, spans across Lake Washington Boulevard in the Madison Park neighborhood.

    The truck could be seen with significant damage to the upper compartment, and part of the roof peeled back after smashing into the aquaduct.

    There's no word yet if anyone was injured in the crash.

    In 2008, nearly two-dozen people were hurt with a school bus carrying the Garfield High School softball team crashed into the aquaduct in the same area.

    The Arboretum Aquaduct was build around 1913 and was nominated as a Seattle Landmark by the city's Landmarks Preservation Board in 1974.

    It's also on the National Register of Historic Places.
