MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- A semi-trailer truck got stuck on a foot bridge near the North Point Lighthouse on Tuesday evening, November 11th.
Milwaukee County Sheriff's officials tell FOX6 News calls started coming in around 4:30 p.m.
Sheriff's officials say the semi's driver is a 50-year-old man who claimed he was following GPS directions that apparently led him to a foot path, over an initial pedestrian bridge and onto a second bridge, where the semi stopped.
No other vehicles were involved, and no one was injured.
We're told the semi's driver was taken to the hospital to be evaluated.
"How he got across this bridge, which is now a bike path -- it's amazing that he didn't, the bridge didn't collapse. The bridges were built in 1893 when the park was built, so these are the original bridge trusses," Mark Kuehn, the curator of the North Point Lighthouse Museum said.
Sheriff's officials say the semi's driver will be cited for failing to obey a sign and reckless driving.
The semi was not hauling anything at the time of this incident.
We're told the Sheriff's Office is inspecting the semi, and an architect is being called in to repair damage to the second foot bridge.
A decision has been made to wait until morning to try to remove the truck -- a process that may involve removing one of the concrete posts on the bridge.
The pedestrian bridges in the area are commonly referred to as the "Lion Bridges."
