Not sure how

There was a disabled truck in the Ted Williams at that time, and traffic was (and still is) at a near standstill, all the way to Weston.

Also,

Bus routes involved in crash were a 501 bus and 505 bus.

Just drove passed it all going west...going to be a looong morning for a lot of people. 2 fire trucks and about 10 cruisers.

Minor delays? Stopped traffic

Minor delays? Stopped traffic on 128-to-Pike ramps in Weston. I pulled over, checked traffic, and took Beacon Street, which was the right move.

And by minor they mean it's going to take more than twice as long as it usually does to get to work
