A gentleman ran into more trouble than first expected on June 3.  He was travelling in his RV and noted he was having engine troubles.  He attempted to turn around on the highway to return to town and have the vehicle checked, when he went a little too far back and became hung up on the road edge, in turn blocking half the highway.  Police and highways personnel provide traffic control until a tow truck was able to come out and safely remove the RV from the road.
