Semi gets stuck under Klamath Falls bridge

KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – A tall truck got stuck under a short bridge Monday morning in Klamath Falls.

A semi got stuck under an overpass at Veterans Memorial Park just before 7 Monday morning.

Most semi-trailer trucks are about 13 and a half feet tall.

“14-foot bridges are usually okay,” said Edward Haas of Ace Towing. “This one’s about 3 feet shorter.”

Hass adds this isn’t the first time a truck has gotten stuck under the park bridge. “We get one every year, it seems like. There was one month we had 3 of them.”

The truck was carrying a load of romaine lettuce, oranges, and lemons.

Hass says the produce had to be removed from the truck in order to free it. “Once that’s done, the trailer’s light enough that you can move it and get it out of here.”

There were no injuries.

Police contacted ODOT to have the bridge inspected for any damage.

No citations have been issued, and no dollar estimate of damage has been made.
