More Truck Trouble At Binghamton Roundabout
Part of the downtown Binghamton roundabout was out of service for a couple of hours after a tractor-trailer became hung up on the circle.
The out-of-town driver was trying to head west on Court Street but he was unable to properly maneuver the rig through the roundabout.
The problem occurred at about 8:45 this morning.
The tractor-trailer belongs to Bolus Freight Systems of Scranton.
City police say a heavy-duty wrecker was called in to move the trailer off the center portion of the roundabout. There appeared to be no significant damage to the roundabout and there were no injuries.
A police supervisor said the truck driver was expected to be issued a ticket.
Several incidents involving large vehicles have occurred at the roundabout since it opened to traffic in August 2012.
