Stuck truck fails to clear Spring Garden overpass

Tuesday, May 14, 2013

Crews worked to free a truck that became stuck under an overpass in the Spring Garden section of Philadelphia Tuesday morning.

Philadelphia Police and firefighters were called to the intersection of 9th and Spring Garden Streets around 11:30 a.m.

Officials say the 18-wheeler was too tall for the overpass and struck the bridge.

There were no reports of injuries.

It took crews several hours to clear the scene. The road was back open by 3:00 p.m.

The accident remains under investigation.
