H.E. BAILEY TURNPIKE, OK (KSWO) -Crews were called to remove an excavator that became lodged in a tollbooth.

The main cash lane at the Newcastle gate, north of Chickasha on I-44, was blocked from 3:10 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. when a truck hauling the construction equipment got stuck.

According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, the driver believed there was enough space to squeeze through, but quickly found out otherwise when the equipment got stuck. No one was injured, but it took just over two hours and another piece of heavy machinery to get the vehicle out.
