SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A big rig driver is blaming his GPS for getting him stuck off the J Street off-ramp into Downtown Sacramento on Friday morning.

The big rig driver, who says he was from out of the area, says his GPS told him to exit at J Street to take 3rd Street. The truck then got hung up on some corner pillars at the intersection – blocking the J Street off-ramp from Interstate 5 for some time.

The big rig got stuck and blocked the J Street off-ramp into Downtown Sacramento for some time.

There is a sign telling truck drivers to not turn right.

A tow truck has since dislodged the big rig and the off-ramp was reopened around 9 a.m.

There is a sign at the intersection warning trucks with three axles or more to not turn right due to the sharp curve.
