After the truck remained stuck in the middle of the road for nearly an hour, it was safely taken out with the help of police and other people.

“Prima facie, it appears that the driver of the vehicle misjudged the underneath height of the overbridge vis-a-vis the height of the consignment being carried on the vehicle, and as a result, it got stuck beneath the overbridge," Piprakothi’s station house officer Manoj Kumar told Hindustan Times.
