A truck delivering electronics got stuck under an underpass on the 65th street transverse in Central Park on Monday afternoon, scraping to a stop just 10 feet away from Central Park West, according to A Walk in the Park blog.

The vehicle was finally able to break free after air was taken out of the tires.

Traffic was blocked from crossing the park for hours. It’s not like the park has any signs warning drivers about the maximum allowable height or anything…
