The Callahan Tunnel in Boston was temporarily closed, Thursday, as crews removed a backhoe that became wedged in the entrance to the tunnel.

Massachusetts State police said Thursday morning an "over-height trailered backhoe" had become stuck. The tunnel was closed as the vehicle was removed.

The backhoe sustained a hydraulic leak, but was eventually removed.

The tunnel was reopened after engineers inspected it for damage.

The driver of the backhoe will be cited for operating an over-height vehicle.
