Truck gets stuck in Golden Gate toll plaza
July 03, 2013, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — Several lanes of the freeway that carries traffic south into San Francisco had to be closed after a tractor-trailer got stuck while trying to pass through the Golden Gate Bridge toll plaza.

Bridge spokeswoman Mary Currie says the front of the truck became wedged between a pair of toll booths Monday morning when the driver attempted to drive through a narrow lane meant for cars. The cab suffered a broken axle due to the tight fit.

CHP Officer Andrew Barclay says the driver told authorities he had tried to merge into one of the wide lanes designed for trucks but couldn’t because of traffic.

Barclay says a tow truck freed the truck after about 2 1/2 hours.

Currie says the mishap caused some minor damage to the bridge’s electronic toll-taking equipment.
