Tractor-trailer stuck under train bridge

A tractor-trailer attempting to drive under a train bridge in Darien wedged itself beneath the structure, snarling downtown traffic for hours Monday afternoon, police said.

The crash occurred shortly after 4 p.m. when a tractor-trailer driving down Post Road attempted to drive under the Tokaneke Road bridge, which carries train tracks over the Post Road.

The truck got stuck and removing it took several hours, causing traffic congestion in the area though no one was believed to have been injured, police said.
