HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) -

Two teenagers are facing charges after they were rescued from a pick up truck that got stuck on the railroad track 30 feet above the street in Hamilton.

Just after 2 a.m., the Hamilton Fire Department responded to the railroad bridge at South B Street and Arch Street for a vehicle stuck on the overhead tracks with two occupants inside.

Upon arrival, crews found a GMC 1500 pick up truck struck sideways and hanging over the side of the bridge.

Firefighters used their ladder tower to rescue the two men from the truck. They were not injured and taken into police custody.

The driver, Tyler Hulse, 19, is charged with disrupting public services, OVI, underage consumption, criminal trespassing and possession of drugs. When police tried to give him a sobriety test, he told police, "I'm too drunk." His blood alcohol content was measure at .181, over two times the legal limit for adults. Police also Xanax in Hulse's pocket.

Investigators say Hulse gained access to the railroad tracks adjacent to the police station at the Front Street crossing, and then proceeded to drive across the Great Miami River on the bridge. As he crossed over South B Street, he lost control and the vehicle became stuck nearly 30 feet above the street.

According to the arrest report, Hulse told police that he, "must have made a wrong turn."

The passenger, Roger Nichols, also 19, is charged with underage consumption, criminal trespassing and intoxication unable to care. Police say when Nichols got to the ground, he had to be held by his jacket to keep from falling over and had bloodshot and glassy eyes. When asked what he had been drinking, he told police, "I was just trying to help my friend get his car off the tracks."

An oncoming Amtrak train with passengers had to be stopped so a collision could be avoided. The train was stalled for several hours.

CSX officials were called to remove the truck from the tracks. The track reopened after CSX officials inspected it.
