Delivery van gets stuck after driver miscalculation
3:00pm Saturday 12th January 2013 in News
A DELIVERY van visiting Waitrose in Wimborne was forced to make an unscheduled overnight stop this week.
The driver of the van attempted to enter the underground car park, which has a height restriction of two metres, but became stuck.
The vehicle proved to be so jammed in that it had to stay put overnight.
Customer Annie Chambers, who lives in Wimborne, sent in photographs of the trapped van, and said motorists had to be directed around the Waitrose car park because of the problem.
“They were still letting cars get into the car park, because the ramp is two-way,” she said. “One side goes down into the car park, and that’s where the van was trapped. The other side allows cars to come back up. Someone had to stand on the other side of the ramp to direct cars in and out.”
Store manager Ian Burdekin refused to talk to the Echo.
