An 18-wheeler apparently filled with soft drinks got stuck in the east-bound entrance of the Bankhead Tunnel.

People on the scene tell Fox10News the Mobile Police Department is re-routing traffic as crews pull the truck out the entrance way.

Wreckers arrived to help with the effort. There is no word from authorities if anyone was injured.

Once the trailer was freed, the top looked like crumpled aluminum foil. The Bankhead Tunnel does have height restrictions for tractor trailers using the tunnel.

Onlookers say it looks like Mobile Police are investigating the cause of the accident.  FOX10News would like to thank Chris Stanford for sending us photos of the accident.
