TERRACE HEIGHTS, Wash. -- Terrace Heights Drive was closed at 18th St. for much of Wednesday after a semi-truck got stuck on the side of the bridge.

A tractor trailer crashed into the side of the Terrace Heights bridge and was hanging over the edge.

The driver apparently lost control on this bridge near Sarg Hubbard Park around lunch time.

The truck went up and over the side of the bridge.

There's no word on the driver's condition.

Witnesses worried about what could happen.

"I looked and I saw that it was leaning over the bridge and I was thinking that the driver was hanging off the other side or that the bridge was going to collapse or maybe that the truck was gonna fall off the edge of the bridge," said Billy Walters.

Traffic backed up in both directions for hours. At one point, the bridge was closed as crews removed the truck.
