Due to bad weather conditions, the large vehicle could not be retrieved immediately after the incident. Therefore, with the wet weather letting up, tow trucks are now able to recover the vehicle.

However, due to the size of the truck, traffic officials are obligated to corner the road off for motorists’ safety.
