Tihomir Bezbradica, 31, was cited for failure to obey a traffic control device. Signs are posted stating maximum height of 12'6", however his trailer is 13'6".

He stated he was not at fault because the signs are only in English and not also in his language from the Ukraine. No one was injured.

The truck had to be manually unloaded of thousands of pounds of metal before it could be removed from the scene.
