Garbage Truck Gets Stuck Under Bridge

Well it's happened again, this time it was a city garbage truck.  A city of Longview garbage truck got stuck underneath the Green street overpass.

Officials say Richard Hough was driving the truck.  Hough had only been with the city for about a month.  City officials say employees are reminded constantly not to try and go underneath that particular bridge.  Damage to the truck is estimated between $6,000 and $8,000.

Hough has been placed on administrative leave.

Three years ago a Longview fire truck also got stuck underneath the Green street bridge.
