ECHO PARK — The long list of vehicles — including buses, stretch limos, etc — that have gotten stuck at the top of Baxter Street now includes a Miller-Lite Beer delivery truck, which became stranded on the peak this morning.

“Baxter Street did it again! – This time brought to you by Miller Light,” said Anibal Koliren, who emailed a photo of the truck.

A Twitter user who goes by Lurch Pop shot a video of how the truck was able finally able to get over the peak at Baxter and Alvarado streets. The delivery truck was pulled over the top by a cable attached to a tow truck parked on the other side of the hill.

The truck was rescued shortly after 1 p.m., according to Lurch Pop.
