A house that got stuck on the side of a busy freeway for over a week after it hit an overpass has finally been hauled away.
California Highway Patrol Officer Francisco Villalobos said the house was moved at about 10 p.m. Tuesday.
Television news footage showed the single-story home being hauled on a trailer along the northbound lanes of Highway 101.
The house had sat beside the freeway since Sept. 15, when it clipped an overpass while being moved from Santa Monica to Santa Clarita.
The trailer being used to move the house was immobilized in the collision and the building's roof was seriously damaged.
Vandals festooned the structure with graffiti during the 10 days that it sat on the side of the road.
Kimberly Bigman, one of the house's owners, told KNBC news that she has been fighting a "nervous breakdown" over the botched
She said she expected that she and her partner Patrick Richardson would be billed more than $20,000 to cover the moving expenses.
