SAN ANTONIO – A big rig driver drove his truck under a low South Side bridge on Thursday, the latest in a series of similar incidents at the same location.

Big rigs frequently get stuck beneath the bridge at South St. Mary's Street and Mission Road.

In Thursday's incident, the trailer of the big rig hit the railroad bridge as it tried to go underneath it.

San Antonio police had to close St. Mary's for several hours Thursday afternoon to clean up the mess.
