Semi truck gets stuck under pedestrian bridge while avoiding poorly parked van 


A pedestrian bridge in Georgia will be closed for several days after a semi truck got stuck underneath it after making a delivery on Friday morning. 

The incident happened on December 9th just after 6:30 a.m. in Savannah, Georgia at Factors Walk. 

According to ABC 22, the truck made a delivery to a restaurant and was trying to leave the area, but a white van was parked in a spot with its rear end sticking out. The truck was then forced to drive closer to the edge of the road to avoid hitting the van instead of the typical center. The edge of the roadway turned out to be higher than the center, and the truck became stuck beneath a pedestrian bridge. 

The truck was still edged beneath the bridge as of 12:45 p.m. EST. The area is blocked off by yellow tape, and a pile of bricks was knocked loose in the incident. 

Officials say the bridge will be closed for several days while the structure is stabilized and the truck is removed. No one was hurt in the incident.
