Rig just too big for Plaza-area streets

SANTA FE, N.M. — In case you need to know – there apparently isn’t enough space for a tractor-trailer rig to make a right turn from Galisteo Street on the West San Francisco in front of Evangelo’s Lounge.

This afternoon (Monday, Feb. 29), a rig took down the stop sign at the intersection, on Galisteo, and clipped the base of a portal post on San Francisco trying to make the turn. There was slight damage to the wooden post base, but the truck itself seem to get the worst of the collision,  judging from the damage to its front bumper and wheel-well.

One of the city crew members helping block off the scene around 3:30 p.m. said this seemed to be a GPS problem – the GPS doesn’t tell you that the streets it directs you to are too narrow for a big rig.
