NORWALK - Traffic was worse than usual on the Merritt Parkway in Norwalk this morning after a tractor-trailer stopped in front of an overpass when the driver realized he couldn't make it under.

It happened around 8:30 a.m. on the northbound side of the parkway near the East Rocks Road overpass.

Drivers had to wait as officials escorted the vehicle off the parkway.

Commercial trucks are not allowed on the Merritt.
