With tight streets and heavy foliage surrounding houses in some areas, there’s not much about Coconut Grove around Tigertail Avenue that’s similar to the highways where 18-wheelers usually roam.
But those overhanging trees proved as problematic as an overpass for one trucker on Monday morning.
Tigertail was closed between Calusa Street and Aviation Avenue for a while Monday morning when the 18-wheeler making a turn got stuck under trees around 8:45 a.m, Miami police said via Twitter.
Police advised drivers take an alternate route. Especially, presumably, drivers in 18-wheelers.
