Traffic in the downtown area came to a halt Monday morning after an 18-wheeler got stuck under a bridge at Roosevelt and South St. Mary's Street.
The rig's driver told police she was looking for her CPS unit [sic] and failed to see the warning signs, causing her to crash the top of the truck aginst [sic] the railway bridge around 4:30 a.m.
Why, yes. Something like this did happen not too long ago.
Lesson #1 for driving a truck on the South Side: Be careful on Roosevelt Street, and pay attention to the signs.
And trade in your CPS unit for a much more functional GPS unit.
