Closest Facility with varying Attribute Parameters

Good Morning!

I want to solve the following situation:
- I've got a network dataset (including max. possible vehicle height) covering my area of interest
- There is an Incident
- There are several vehicles (with different vehicle height)
- I want to identify the vehicle that can reach the Incident earliest (only using streets that it can traverse considering its vehicle height)

In general, I'd use a "Closest Facility Analysis" to solve this. Choosing my Incident as only Incident of the analysis layer, the vehicles as facilities. Furthermore, I would make the max. possible height/vehicle height a parameterized attribute.

However, as far as I understand, now I can only choose one value for actual vehicle height. What I really would want to do is to define the vehicle height by a field of the facilities. So that for each Facility (i.e., for each vehicle) its individual height is considered.

Is this possible with a single Closest Facility Analysis?
Or do I have to solve several Closest Facility Analyses?
