WES trains resume after semi gets stuck under bridge

Posted: Updated:
WILSONVILLE, OR (KPTV) -

A semitrailer too tall to pass under a railroad bridge became stuck in Wilsonville Tuesday morning.

The accident happened on Grahams Ferry Road near Clutter Street at about 8:30 a.m.

Video from FOX 12's helicopter showed the semi wedged under the bridge. The driver was unable to maneuver the truck out from under the bridge.

One beam on the overpass was damaged.

Deputies said the truck was removed at 12:15 p.m. The driver was not hurt but he was given a ticket for causing the incident.

WES trains were not running between Tualatin and Wilsonville after the truck got stuck, but TriMet said they will resume service on the entire line from Beaverton Transit Center to Wilsonville for Tuesday evening's commute.

Trains will be running at reduced speeds of 10 mph over the Grahams Ferry railroad trestle, but TriMet does not expect any significant delays.
