MOBILE-Another truck driver tried to drive through the Bankhead Tunnel Wednesday morning. It happened at about 5:30am. ALDOT officials do not know why this continues to be a problem for some truck drivers. There are plenty of warning signs for drivers alerting them NOT to enter the Bankhead Tunnel. There is a siren.

There is PVC pipe that comes down and there are also flashing lights and chains. But it still happens. The truck today was not carrying anything hazardous. Officials had to let the air out of the tires and unload the truck before it could be moved safely.
