Truck Hits Overpass, Backs Up Traffic

HONOLULU (KHNL) -- A trailer truck wedged under the H-1 freeway's Gulick overpass Wednesday morning, has backed up traffic for miles.

Police say the truck was too tall, and got stuck under the bridge.

Cars are backed up all the way to Punahou Street.

Police shut down westbound lanes following the accident, but the freeway was cleared a couple of hours later.

Crews had to let the air out of the tires, to give them room to tow the truck out.
