Truck gets stuck, blocks traffic




Just before noon on Thursday, a Dollar Store tractor trailer got stuck at the rear inclined exit of Columbia Plaza shopping center, blocking Barber Street. As the driver was making the tight left turn onto Barber, the trailer's landing gear became hung up in the sidewalk concrete. Police arrived, setting up cones and flares and directing traffic, as three tow trucks - including a large rollback - attempted to free the landing gear. The large rollback backed under the trailer and lifted the back wheels off the ground, and the driver then broke the trailer free. Delivery trucks and other vehicles were redirected for over an hour.

  1. What an idiot for even trying to use this street. Should lose license. If can't make better decisions than this, who knows what the hell he'd do on the road.

  5. At least no one was hurt. The real idiots were the drivers that refused to obey the temporary cones and flares. People repeatedly tried to drive around them, making the situation even worse.
