Tractor-trailer gets stuck on Highway 49 in Gulfport

A flatbed tractor-trailer blocked southbound lanes of Highway 49 just south of Highway 53 this morning after its back wheels got stuck in the median.

The flatbed was loaded and the driver apparently was trying to make a turn in a median cut-through when the back wheels went off the asphalt into the grass and got stuck.

The vehicle blocked both lanes of southbound traffic, but the merge lane of Highway 53 extended far enough to allow vehicles to go around the truck, single-file until the rig could be pulled free.
