A big-rig hauling a 53-foot trailer was headed westbound when it got stuck underneath the concrete bridge. Police say the tractor-trailer was more than 2-feet over the posted height clearance sign.

The driver, Nykil Rashad, 30, of Jonesboro, GA, failed to realize his rig was too tall before it became stuck.

    Idiot blamed it on GPS. This isn't the first time. How can people be so stupid? Of course, NYKIL? I'm guessing his origin may have been a factor.
