This photo gives new meaning to “stuck in traffic.”

This Mercedes-Benz S-Class, spotted by Drew McDonald, a 33-year-old businessman from Atlanta, got stuck in wet concrete at the corner of Cumberland and Higgins near O'Hare on Wednesday morning. McDonald, who is in town on business, said he was able to snap the photo while stuck at a red light.

“[The driver] obviously appeared rather exasperated and astonished,” McDonald said. “They were just sitting there, presumably calling for help and generally feeling stupid, one would think.”

Sources at CDOT, IDOT and the Chicago Fire Department had no record of the incident. No word on how the man ended up in the wet concrete in the first place, or how he managed to get out.
