A garbage truck malfunctions and ends up stuck Tuesday morning.

Belpre Police say it happened just before 6 am at the Parkersburg/Belpre exit off of Rt. 7 in Belpre.

Officials say the truck became lodged after malfunctioning hydraulics caused the truck's bucket to lift.

The truck's left tires were lifted from the ground.

Police were able to route traffic around the truck, including some semi trucks.

Officials say there is some damage to the bridge.

ODOT is investigating.
