A truck driver will have to pay up after he tried to drive his truck under a bridge near the University of Virginia and got stuck.
Jorge Ramos was driving a truck carrying produce for Hana Food Distributors, when it got stuck under the railroad bridge at the intersection of University Avenue and 14th St.
Traffic was delayed for a short time while crews worked to remove the truck. Charlottesville police, with help from a tow truck company, deflated the trucks tires and pulled it out from under the bridge. Workers then pumped the tires back up so Ramos could drive away.
Police in Charlottesville say this isn't the first time somebody was stuck there. "We try to have advanced warning systems up, and plus the sign, but sometimes it still happens," said Sgt. Tito Durrette.
Ramos will have to pay hundreds of dollars in fees from the towing company. He also drove away with a $30 ticket from police for failure to obey road signs.
