ALBERTA, British Columbia, Feb. 18 (UPI) -- Traffic on a highway in Canada was obstructed when a truck carrying a house got stuck on a set of train tracks.

The truck was hauling the house along Highway 566 in Alberta at around 5 p.m. on Wednesday night before it suffered a flat tire while driving over train tracks.

Crew believed an object on the ground may have punctured the tire after the crossing barrier had been removed to allow the truck to pass.

Work crews were able to move the truck from the track and replace its tires, but the house was not able to be moved until Thursday morning.
