JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - A pothole located on a downtown Jackson street caused a headache for a truck driver.  A semi-truck's left rear wheels got stuck in the water filled pot hole around six Friday evening.

The driver was attempting to turn on the access road off the Pearl Street exit and onto Pascagoula Street.  Jackson Police officers were called to the scene to direct traffic around the stuck 18-wheeler. More than two hours later the truck was finally lifted out of the deep pot hole and sent on its way.
