A semi truck became lodged under a Metra overpass on 80th Avenue Tuesday morning causing road closures and traffic delays. 

Several hours after first becoming stuck under the overpass 80th Avenue was still closed for several blocks, backing up traffic at the intersection of Southwest Highway, 80th Avenue and Route 83.

The truck's trailer is wedged under the tracks as efforts continue to dislodge it. The road is a popular route for those looking to enter Palos Community Hospital.

No kidding Dan! There seems to be a lot of hateful and angry people out there! My only comment is.....Suzy Q's friend is right. It happens quite a lot! I think the guy made the turn, saw the sign, knew what was about to happen and just panicked....
