An oversized load gets stuck underneath an I-94 overpass. Around 7:30 morning this oversized load carrying two large tanks got stuck while driving under this overpass just 2 miles west of Sterling.

The incident reduced both east and westbound traffic to one lane--backing up traffic for a couple of miles.

Norman Rudd, ND Higway Patrol: "When the truck hit the overhead the tansk came off the trailer. One of the tanks was laying in the passing lane, the other tank was actually wedged underneath the bridge in the driving lane. so the interstate was completely blocked."

Rudd says the driver has no injuries and there was no strucural damage done to the bridge.
