Oops! Crane gets stuck under Canwick Road gantry

A driver in Lincoln was stuck in a bit of a predicament today — the crane on his lorry got wedged under the lights gantry on Canwick Road.

This happened just before 5pm on Canwick Road heading south, blocking the traffic in both directions.

The lorry driver was lucky enough to be helped by two local residents directing the traffic so that no accidents happen.

The crane lorry driver then slowly reversed from his predicament.

He parked near the Party Planet car park so that traffic can resume — and so that we can rethink his strategy.
