Hazmat crew responds to Dunkin' Donuts truck downtown

Hazmat truck and a Dunkin' Donuts truck in downtown Boston

UPDATE, 11:54 a.m.: Truck still there, street still blocked.

High Street by International Place is cordoned off by police this morning due to a situation involving a Dunkin' Donuts truck.

No, the coffee didn't drain into a sewer. Nor did firefighters discover what's in the turkey sausage or the donuts.

Ed Baur reports one of the tractor's diesel tanks began to leak. Around 5:10 a.m.

Semi trucks downtown

By on

Why are semi trucks allowed downtown during rush hour, or at all? Why does the city not require smaller delivery trucks/vans that do not require parking illegally and blocking crosswalks/travel lanes/parking spaces/bike lanes etc. to park.

Wasn't originally there during rush hour

Sorry, I left out the time: The leak was discovered around 5:10 a.m., in what I suspect would have been an otherwise routine delivery well before rush hour.

Why aren't there more loading

By on

Why aren't there more loading zones , and bigger ones , to reflect the method of conveyance.People consume , thus there is stuff to be delivered. Cant email everything , there is no app for that.
