HAMILTON, Ohio — An intoxicated 19-year-old and his friend had to be rescued after he drove his pickup onto CSX’s bridge over the Great Miami River, the Cincinnati Enquirer has reported. Tyler Hulse of Fairfield, Ohio, and his friend, Roger Nichols, also 19, were arrested after rescue workers helped them to safety.

The bridge carries CSX’s Indianapolis-Cincinnati main line, and an Amtrak Cardinal suffered delays as a result of the incident.

Police found the men’s pickup stuck on the bridge deck, dangling precariously off the bridge and Hulse trying to push it free. Officers ordered him to stop for his own safety, and contacted CSX. Fire crews used a large aerial ladder to bring the two to safety.

According to a police report, Hulse admitted he “must have made a wrong turn.”

CSX was able to remove the truck by 4 a.m.
