Garbage Truck Stuck In Lubbock Alley

As NewsChannel 11 showed you Thursday, Lubbock's unpaved alleys can become a challenge for trucks after a good rain. Now we have proof.

Lubbock sanitation crews passed through the alley between 17th and 18th streets, between Slide and Vicksburg just after 9am this morning. And an hour later, they were still there!

Hector Estrada says his truck was simply no match for the mud. "It was a soft spot. I didn't see it. It just sank down on me and I couldn't get out. We tried to pull it out with two trucks, you can see how far we got. It just started leaning over more and more. We thought we better just call a tow truck and let them pull us out."

Fortunately help soon arrived and after several minutes the tow truck pulled the stuck truck back on to solid ground.
