WATCH: Helicopter Hauler Caught Under Overpass

Here’s something you don’t see everyday!

A trucker in Denham Springs, Louisiana had to halt their haul when their load got snagged on an overpass. The incident happened on September 22 when a driver hauling a $30 million helicopter got stuck and shut down all traffic on the road.

WBRZ reported that the Denham Springs Police Department responded to the scene and was able to quickly re-open the road. The overpass is measured at 15 feet above the road, and the 15.5 foot helicopter’s engine was what got stuck.
