A trailer to a semi-truck became stuck underneath a Metra train viaduct, causing Deerfield Road in Deerfield to be shut down for several hours Sunday.

The incident happened Sunday evening on Deerfield Road between Chestnut Street and Park Avenue in Deerfield.

A semi-truck pulling a tractor-trailer was traveling eastbound on Deerfield Road.

The trailer struck the underneath portion of the Metra bridge that goes over Deerfield Road just south of the Metra station.

The trailer became stuck underneath. The driver was able to detach the cab of the truck from the trailer and drive it out.

No injuries were reported, according to Deerfield Deputy Police Chief Chris Fry.

Deerfield Road was shut down in both directions for approximately four hours, Fry said.

The driver of the truck was cited by the police.

Numerous signs are posted in the area leading up to the viaduct warning that it has a clearance of 11 feet, 9 inches.

In December 2021, a semi-truck pulling a Target trailer, which was filled with packages, became stuck under the same viaduct.
