Garbage truck gets stuck under a West Mt. Airy train bridge

A garbage truck found itself in a tight spot this afternoon underneath SEPTA’s Upsal train bridge in West Airy. SEPTA continued to operate the Chestnut Hill West line trains through the afternoon. 

The truck was just a little too tall to pass underneath the bridge. The tires were deflated in an effort to lower its height and use a tow-truck to pull it out.
