BALTIMORE (WMAR) - Maryland Transportation Authority Police have cited a tractor trailer driver after he failed to follow his oversize load permits and got stuck in a toll plaza, causing significant damage.
Just after noon a tractor trailer hauling a Caterpillar excavator attempted to pass through a toll lane at the Fort McHenry toll plaza southbound.
The oversized load was too wide to pass through the toll and proceeded to hit the plaza causing significant damage to the toll plaza.
The driver of the truck was driving in violation of a permit that had been issued for the load. The driver failed to follow the route instructions on the permit and has been cited for both permit and equipment violations.
The toll lane was checked and reopened to traffic at about 3:00 p.m.
No other vehicles were involved in the accident, and there were no reports of injuries.
