On Saturday at 12:45pm, a moving truck became stuck while attempting to navigate the tight turn onto Waller Street from Alpine Terrace.
Thanks to tipster Jesse B., we received some great photos of the scene, which was described as "quite a spectacle for the neighborhood."
The truck blocked the entirety of the intersection, requiring residents and those passing through to take an alternate route.
According to the website for Barnes Moving and Storage
(based out of Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts), they offer a guarantee that they're "still doing business the 'Old Fashion Way.'" With geography in mind, one can assume that drivers used to handling the gently rolling hills of Martha's Vineyard may not be used to the absurd grades of San Francisco's streets. Or more specifically, the appropriately-named Alpine Terrace.
In the end, a tow truck had to remove the trailer's underride guard to allow more freedom of movement. By 10:30pm, almost ten hours later, Barnes Moving was able to complete its turn.
