Stuck truck tips light pole


A semi-trailer truck trying to turn into Sherman Avenue from Lake Street in Evanston about 10:30 this morning got stuck trying to make the tight turn and in trying to back out ended up running into a street light pole.

A crew from North Shore Towing attached chains to the truck's trailer, planning to pull it sideways to get it back onto the roadway.

A police car blocked traffic at the intersection of Lake Street and Elmwood Avenue while the crews worked to free the stuck truck.
