CAMBRIDGE, Vt. (WCAX) - The Notch Road was closed for several hours overnight as crews worked to remove a stuck tractor-trailer.

Crews were called to Route 108 between Cambridge and Stowe around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Police say Antonio Baldomero, 36, of Miami, Florida, saw the signs warning that his tractor-trailer wouldn’t fit, but he continued to follow his GPS anyway.

He got stuck, and crews worked for several hours to get the truck out

The road was reopened shortly before 2 a.m. Wednesday.

The driver must pay $3,544 in fines and will have four points on his license.

Trucks getting stuck on the Notch Road has been an ongoing problem. The Notch has always been impassable for long trucks, but in recent years, more and more drivers are getting stuck, many by blindly following their GPS systems.

Just last week, it happened for the first time this season.
