Hay Bale Holdup Near Interstate

Posted: Updated:

An oversized load of hay gets cut down by an overpass in Mandan.

The driver of this stacked trailer gets his load of hay cut down to size at the Sunset Drive exit overpass.

It's marked as 14 feet 5 inches.

A few bales on top of the trailer got knocked off into the road, causing a minor traffic holdup.

Mandan police were on scene within minutes directing traffic, as they waited for a loader to move the bale barricades.

Surprisingly, police say this isn't that unusual of a sight in North Dakota.

"In North Dakota you see the hay bale thing a lot with bridges, they stack it pretty high on the farm, when they bring it town, don't realize how low some of these bridges are so, it happens... Just a semi coming north on Sunset here, didn't realize he had his bales stacked too high, just basically skimmed the whole top of the load off, took the top part of it off, could have been a lot worse, wasn't that much hay." says Jason Neuberger/Mandan Police Department.

Officers say the driver was not cited for anything.

Traffic was opened back up within around 15 minutes.
