HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Northbound traffic on Memorial Parkway is clear after a large piece of equipment that shifted off the back of an 18-wheeler earlier Monday afternoon.

Several emergency crews were working on the scene, including Huntsville Police and Huntsville Fire. It took quite a bit of time for authorities to determine the safest way to move the equipment from the road. The equipment also clipped a power line when it shifted off the truck.

The equipment had just been taken out of a Huntsville Utilities substation and was being hauled to the Chase Operations Center.

A large crane was brought in to lift the equipment and put it back on the trailer.
