The truck turned down Countess Street heading into the CBD and stopped just before the rail bridge when the driver realised he could not pass underneath the bridge.

Police asked commuters to avoid the area if possible as traffic delays were expected as they worked to reverse the truck back up the street to leave the area.
Queensland Traffic said traffic was stopped on Countess Street and Secombe Street, while delays continued to build along Kelvin Grove Road, Petrie Terrace and the off-ramp from the Inner City Bypass.
