A load of plywood that spilled off a flatbed truck just before 5 p.m. Wednesday onto the roundabout at Grand Harbour caused major rush-hour traffic problems.
A red BMW sedan, apparently just behind the Cox Lumber truck when it lost its load, drove up onto part of the wood pile, further worsening delays for people commuting home to the east.
Sheets of plywood spread across the road. A bystander directed traffic around the piles of wood as traffic backed up along South Sound Road and Crewe Road.
Cox Lumber declined to comment on the incident.
