Witnesses said the house tow tractor attempted to exit Richmond’s Broad Street onto Interstate 95 Tuesday night but blocked four lanes and left a tree branch stuck on the roof of the house.

June 15 (News) — Virginia police stopped a vehicle transporting a house on a trailer after the vehicle ran into trouble, including getting stuck at an intersection and hitting a bridge.

Virginia State Police said the home appeared on Virginia Department of Transportation traffic cameras after it crossed onto I-95, and officials noticed the plastic wrap around the home had come loose and was being dragged behind the trailer.

Police officers pulled the vehicle away a short time later after the roof of the house made contact with a bridge. They said the bridge does not appear to be damaged.

The driver, who was not injured, will be charged with a vehicle height violation, police said.

Another home-moving mishap made headlines in April when police in Labette County, Kan., found an abandoned mobile home in the middle of a gravel road.

Authorities said they later learned the home had been abandoned due to problems with several of the vehicle’s tires. It was recovered by its owner and continued its journey to Oklahoma.
