Truck catcher overpass

KANSAS CITY, MO. (KCTV) -- Northeast Kansas City residents: Stop if you've heard this one before - a truck got stuck under the overpass at Independence and Wilson Road.

Nicknamed the "truck catcher," it happened again on Monday.

There were no injuries reported after a semi got stuck under the overpass.

Back in December, crews installed new signs warning truckers about the 12-foot overpass.

Still, at least in this case, the signs were not enough to prevent this incident.
