MOBILE, ALA. (WPMI) -- An 18-wheeler was stuck for over seven hours after attempting to go through the Bankhead Tunnel in Mobile, Alabama.

The tunnel was closed shortly after the truck became stuck at approximately 2:30 p.m. Officials worked through the rest of the afternoon to clean up the hay the truck was carrying and remove it.

The truck was finally removed around 9:30 p.m. from the tunnel. This is the second time in two weeks a vehicle taller than the posted height limits has attempted to enter the Bankhead Tunnel.

One other car was involved and damaged in the incident, according to officials, but no injuries have been reported.
