A semi-truck trailer was damaged when it became stuck under a train viaduct, causing traffic delays in Deerfield in a location that has been plagued with similar past incidents.

The Deerfield Police Department responded just before 4:30 p.m. Thursday to the area of Deerfield Road and Park Avenue in Deerfield.

A semi-truck pulling a trailer attempted to drive westbound under the train overpass just south of the Deerfield Metra station.

The trailer, which was over the posted height requirement, sustained significant damage in the incident.

The semi-truck was disconnected from the trailer and was not stuck under the bridge.
