BLUEFIELD, WV (WVVA) A driver carrying an oversized load gets stuck on Route 52 in Bluefield.

It appears the driver was attempting to turn onto Cherry Street near Bluefield State College when a large steel beam made contact with the pavement. The incident happened before 8 a.m. on Wednesday. 

A tow truck and endloader were needed to help get the beam off the road. Workers from Triton Construction, the company hauling the load, and a city police officer directed traffic during the ordeal.

Traffic returned to normal around 9:30 a.m.
