Motorists driving on North Main Street Thursday morning may have encountered a foreign object in the road between the hours of 11 a.m. and noon.
A large Amish-built log cabin was situated at the intersection of Main and Kingsbury streets for the better part of an hour as the result of faulty brakes in the truck that was towing it.
According to Tom Shea, of the Jamestown Police Department, the cabin was being transported from Sugarcreek, Ohio, to Hague, N.Y., via a Dodge Ram 3500. The Dodge’s brakes locked up on Interstate 86 just outside of Jamestown, and the driver attempted to bring the truck to Lake County Dodge via Main Street.
The truck came to a halt at the aforementioned intersection, and brake fluid was seen visibly leaking from the front and rear of the vehicle.
As traffic was being diverted around the cabin, a second truck following behind the cabin during its transportation was used to tow the cabin to the dealership, while a tow truck brought the Dodge to the dealership for repair, police said.
