GHENT, W.Va. — No one was hurt Tuesday when a semi hauling a wide load clipped the toll booth at the Ghent Toll Plaza of the West Virginia Turnpike.
Officials say the truck was traveling northbound and tried to go through the EZ Pass lane. The trailer was too wide to fit into the narrow gap and hit the toll booth. A worker was in the booth, but was not injured.
Officials say there is a lane designated for “wide loads” but the trucker chose not to use it.
The lane where the accident happened was closed, but the rest of the toll plaza experienced no traffic backups.
