Numerous commuters were met with unfortunate circumstances last night on their way into Manhattan. An exposed “finger joint” on the George Washington Bridge gave 20 drivers flat tires on the way into New York from New Jersey, reports Gothamist. Delays were reportedly so severe, miles of cars were lined up waiting to get into Manhattan.

One victim of the exposed finger joint told WCBS 2 tow trucks would not come onto the bridge, and the affected cars were forced to drive away on their rims. The problem, which occurred last night around 10 p.m., was fixed by this morning, reports Gothamist.
