    A tractor trailer got into a slippery situation in Center City Philadelphia on Wednesday morning.

    The CVS pharmacy rig got stuck on a large snow mound on South 11th Street near Market Street, leaving the large trailer leaning perilously to one side around 8 a.m. on Wednesday.

    Photos of the mishap posted to social networks show the truck stuck in the middle of the street, preventing traffic from getting by.

    The truck appears to have been making a delivery to the CVS store up the block and lodged itself when trying to back down Ludlow Street. 

    Philadelphia Police were on scene to investigate the incident.

    The truck was moved out around 9 a.m. and the street reopened.
