Literally, Stuck In Traffic...

From WFAA-TV in Dallas, TX:

DALLAS — Here's a story that gives new meaning to the phrase "stuck in traffic."

News 8 viewer and freelance photographer Alison Bristol said she was passing a construction crew at the corner of Lemmon Avenue and Inwood Road Monday when she noticed a Mercedes sedan embedded in some freshly-poured concrete.

"Apparently, the driver didn't realize the construction crew just finished pouring cement on the road," Bristol said, adding that the car drove into a work area clearly marked by signs and cones.

The driver had to be helped out of the car because the vehicle was completely surrounded by wet pavement.

As for the Mercedes, a wrecker was called to extract it from the southbound lanes before it became stuck in traffic permanently.
