After car gets stuck on Chelsea bridge, operators suspended

A car got stuck on the Chelsea Street Bridge Thursday evening, and the bridge operators on duty at the time have been suspended, according to the state Department of Transportation.

The bridge, which connects East Boston and Chelsea, has a span that can be elevated to allow vessels to navigate the Chelsea Creek.

The vehicle was caught “between the safety gates on the deck,’’ the agency said in a statement.
