Tractor-trailer gets stuck in Nesquehoning

A tractor-trailer driver faces charges after he wedged the rig in the middle of an intersection in Nesquehoning.

According to police Chief Sean Smith, the rig was traveling east on West Railroad Street at 2:10 p.m. Monday when the driver attempted to make a hard left turn onto Allen Street. The tractor-trailer was too large to make the turn and became stuck.

Zenier’s Towing was called and towed the rig out of the intersection.

Smith said the driver will be cited for several equipment violations, bald tires and the trailer being out of inspection. PHOTOS COURTESY OF NESQUEHONING POLICE
