Stuck Truck in Midway District

An enormous moving truck was stuck in the Point Loma Villa condos’ driveway in the Midway District on Friday morning, November 9, at around 11:00 a.m.

Heavily laden with household items, the T & R Trucking behemoth got a wheel jammed up on the curbing and sloped driveway at 4444 West Point Loma Boulevard. One lane of the busy thoroughfare was blocked as a mover waved cars around the scene. I asked him what happened, but all he did was flail his arms at me.

Several other movers tried to figure out a way to free the truck. They removed large crates from the trailer, believing that lightening the load might help. The bins full of furniture and equipment sat in the condo parking lot in a light drizzle.

Residents of the Point Loma Villas lingered in the parking lot, watching the action. A neighbor said, “This usually happens on the other side of the street," referring to the steep alleys across the way that sporadically hang up chassis of moving vans, buses, and delivery vehicles.

Within an hour, a combination of plywood and tenacity helped free the truck. The movers reloaded the crates and went on their way.
