A big rig driver got a taste of how tough it can be to navigate San Francisco's hilly terrain.

His truck became stuck at the base of a hill in Noe Valley around 8 a.m. Friday. The grade was too steep for the big rig to clear.

The truck blocked traffic for hours before a tow truck could clear the intersection. The driver says he got lost while trying to get to South San Francisco and was simply following directions on his GPS.
