Airport parking garage blocked after semi gets stuck

SALT LAKE CITY — Airport parking was even more taxing than usual Sunday morning after a semi truck tried to enter the parking garage and got stuck.

Airport officials said the cab of the truck was too tall for the structure. The truck was stuck for nearly two hours.

Authorities were able to move the truck after deflating the tires.

I wish I was but the pictures don't lie! It's not Photoshop. I saw this a while back and was reminded of it earlier in a YouTube video. It still amazes me! So let's start a new game called "What Were They Thinking???".

Since when does "Underground parking" and "18 wheeler" equal a good idea??

Yea saw this on facebook. There is a trucking group on Facebook that pretty much makes fun of the dumb stuff drivers do.

Yeah, I like the pictures they post. But I hate the comments. Never have I seen so many elitists in one place.

I may be wrong, but an incident like this probably got the driver fired, or?

Yes sir. There just isn't an excuse. He should never even be near an airport parking lot in such a large city. Its obvious, or at least should be, that a truck won't fit in there.

Not to mention that no trucks are allow in the automobile area of the airport. Not so bad back in the day but since 9/11 if security sees a truck near the main passenger terminal it's asking for a whole lot of trouble.

Besides almost every parking garage has the height rating of the opening above the passage way. It's clearly marked in the picture 10'5. I am sorry but in the case of this driver all I can say is "You can't fix stupid"

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.
