Police were called to the bridge southeast of the city’s downtown about 4 a.m. Tuesday. WANE-TVreports the trailer was stuck under the bridge, with the front section of the trailer buckled.

The bridge carries several railroad lines over a major city street and is marked for a height clearance of 12 feet, 2 inches.
