MILWAUKEE -- A semi-truck driving on Kinnickinnic Avenue in Milwaukee was crushed under a  train overpass Monday morning.

The truck was carrying 42,000 pounds of potatoes when attempted to drive underneath a train bridge near Becher Street on Monday morning in the Bay View neighborhood of Milwaukee.

Witnesses on scene tell TODAY'S TMJ4 that the maximum height sign on the truck was not visible far away due to the snow.

The truck is 13' 6".

There was no initial word about anyone being hurt.
