CAMBRIDGE, Vt. (WCAX) - The Notch Road has reopened after the first stuck truck of the season closed it down for several hours overnight.

First responders were called to Route 108 or the Notch in Cambridge around 11:30 p.m. Monday.

They say a tractor-trailer got stuck in the sharp curve near the top of Smugglers’ Notch.

The Florida driver, Edzer Cosmeus, told police he saw the warning signs about not driving through the Notch in a tractor-trailer but continued to follow his GPS anyway.

Cosmeus was issued a civil violation and faces a $3,500 fine with four points on his license.

Route 108 was completely shut down for about three hours while crews worked to remove the vehicle.

The Notch Road reopened around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday.
