Excavator Gets Wedged in Toll Booth Lane

SkyForce10 - NBC10.com

An excavator was wedged stuck in a toll booth lane at the Burlington-Bristol Bridge in Bucks County, Pa. on Thursday evening.

A tractor trailer was carrying the large earthmover eastbound across the bridge, which spans the Delaware River, when the tracks of the excavator became stuck around 5 p.m., bridge officials say.

The machine's tracks extend over the side of the trailer and became wedged between a barrier and guardrail in the lane on the Pa. side of the toll booth.

Crews were forced to shut down the lane and divert traffic away from the mess. They spent about three hours working to free the machine.

The lane was reopened around 8:30 p.m., officials said.
