Stuck 18-wheeler temporarily closes Longview intersection

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - The intersection of Green Street and the Nelson Street bridge in Longview was closed Thursday after an 18-wheeler attempted the underpass and got stuck.

It happened around 1:30 p.m. Wreckers were able to remove the empty tractor tank.

It is not uncommon for 18-wheelers to get stuck at the bridge as the underpass is only 10 feet.

The driver was not hurt, but says he is slightly embarrassed.
