MIAMI – A tractor-trailer became wedged under the overpass of the eastbound lanes of the Interstate 395 expressway Wednesday night in Miami.

Miami Department of Fire-Rescue Capt. Ignatius Carrol said the tractor-trailer got stuck under the I-395 overpass near Northwest Third Avenue and Northeast 14th Street just before 10 p.m.

Carrol said when firefighters arrived, the driver was safely out of the truck, speaking with Miami police.
