Needles, CA: Flatbed trailer truck moves a large transformer through the community.

If you were stuck in a line of vehicles and big rig trucks along the westbound lanes of Interstate 40 in Needles, California on the morning of Thursday, December 10th, 2015, this is why.

A large flatbed trailer truck was moving a large transformer through the community being escorted by California Highway Patrol and City of Needles Public Work Crews.

The large flatbed trailer truck with the large transformer reportedly came down West Broadway passing under flashing red traffic signals that had to be lifted up to the large flatbed trailer truck and the large transformer can pass under and got onto westbound Interstate 40 at J Street in Downtown Needles, California.

ZachNews Photojournalist Zachary A. Lopez heard the large flatbed trailer truck and seen the large transformer, and headed to the Needles Highway Bridge.

Both the eastbound side and westbound side of Interstate 40 at Needles Highway was briefly closed as the large flatbed trailer truck with the large transformer crossed over from the westbound lanes of Interstate 40, over the eastbound lanes of Interstate 40, and onto the off ramp to eastbound Interstate so to get onto Needles Highway and go over Interstate 40 on the bridge.
