Oil rig truck stuck under overpass, removed

A large oil rig truck got stuck under an overpass in Tyler Tuesday morning, causing traffic delays for motorists.

A 14 foot WTH Incorporated oil rig truck, weighing 125,000 pounds was trying to pass under the 13.9 ft. railroad overpass on Front Street just east of Glenwood around 10 a.m., when it became stuck.

The westbound inside lane of Front Street was blocked for about an hour while crews worked to break the truck free of the bridge.

When the truck hit the overpass, a hydraulic hose was busted, creating a small hydraulic fluid leak onto the roadway. Crews put down dirt and sand to absorb the fluid.

At this time the big rig has been moved to Herndon Street.

No one was injured in the incident. The driver was cited for disregarding a traffic control device.
