Does this really constitute a nightmare?

Ahhh, nothing says "Fall in Quebec" like and exciting story about SQ traffic control on the Autoroutes:

Traffic nightmare on Montreal's Highway 15

Montreal  Northbound traffic on the Laurentian Autoroute was disrupted Wednesday afternoon when a trailer truck transporting a house got stuck as it tried to drive under an overpass known as the Viaduct Grand Héron near St. Jérôme.

The accident happened at 1:45 p.m. It was exacerbated when a truck carrying a back hoe was unable to brake and smashed into the stuck truck.

Nobody was injured, but two of three northbound lanes were closed, said Sûreté du Québec Sgt. Claude Denis. Southbound traffic was not affected.
