MANSFIELD, OH - A large truck became trapped under the railway bridge at the junction of US-42 and SR-430, after the driver mistakenly believed there was enough clearance.

The incident happened shortly after 2 P.M. Officers on-scene said the driver wasn't speeding or operating the vehicle improperly, and that the driver simply made a mistake after eyeballing the clearance height, and that it was simply a case of bad luck.

The truck was plucked by Shelly Smith & Sons tow trucks after an hour or so of being stuck.
