A tractor-trailer got stuck Wednesday under the railroad overpass on outbound North Broadway near New Circle Road.


A tractor-trailer has been removed from under a railroad overpass on outbound North Broadway where the truck got stuck. The truck was heading toward New Circle Road when the driver learned the truck was too tall to clear the space left by the overpass.

Freeing the truck too less time than police initially expected. To dislodge the vehicle, air was removed from the tires before it was pulled out, back down Broadway away from New Circle.
