TULSA – Crews worked together to free a crane that became stuck under an overpass on U.S. 169 eastbound.

A truck was hauling an escalator going eastbound on U.S. 169 when the arm hit the top of the bridge and became stuck near Pine Street.

Crews were able to free the escalator of the truck but the arm stayed wedged between the trailer and the roof of the overpass.

Authorities say the driver of the semi-truck could face several citations and the company will be held responsible for the cleanup costs.
