I-175 lane reopens after truck hits overpass

Police in St. Petersburg say one eastbound Interstate 175 is still closed after a lift truck struck the overpass from underneath, damaging the structure.

The scene is along 6th Street S underneath the I-175 overpass. Police say the truck's lift was not all the way down when the truck drove under, and the lift hit the span. 

No one was injured, but debris fell down along 6th Street and experts say the concrete overpass beams were damaged.

6th Street will remain closed until the two beams can be replaced. I-175's two eastbound lanes, into downtown, were also closed for hours but FDOT says one of them has now reopened.
