Truck helped off Storrow Drive by State Police

Maybe state officials should extend their river-road warnings to big-rig companies, too. Lenny Rove watched State Police get an 18-wheeler off Storrow Drive westbound after it failed to hit any bridges.

Buses backing up on Berkeley

Lenny Rowe reports a convoy of seven Indian Trails buses was headed straight for a storrowing tonight. Fortunately for the passengers, however, the drivers of the two buses that actually close enough to Storrow to realize the doom that awaited them stopped in time and managed to back up on Berkeley. Unfortunately for all the other drivers in the area, that caused a backup.

State Police arrived not long after and shut the road in both directions to get the fool thing off the road, after helping the driver to unwedge the truck and turn it around, as Jack Loughran observed: Read more.

Almost Storrowed truck at Storrow Drive entrance

Lenny Rowe watched a Storrowing that wasn't shortly after 10 a.m. today. But don't worry, traffic-jam fans: Police still shut down the road to let the trucker back up and find another way to head towards 93.

Truck about to drive on Storrow Drive

Judging by how quiet the State Police Twitter feed is, we're going to assume that the driver of this truck, captured this morning by David Fisher, saw the second CARS ONLY sign and suddenly realized that, whoa, maybe he should stop and back up.

Monday:
If you're going to slam your truck into a Storrow overpass, do it right, we always say.

Storrowed truck on Storrow Drive

Tamra Carhart shows us what happens when a truck that doesn't belong on Storrow Drive gets up to ramming speed before tearing itself apart at one of those quaint little overpasses leading up to the Fenway and Kenmore Square.

Because it's sounding like downtown and surrounding areas are at gridlock right now - and it can't possibly be because of people heading to the Beanpot, can it?

Jaci reports:

Two lanes are trying to exit at Charles MGH off Storrow. Those two lanes are not moving.

Ashley Steriti adds:

Revere to Back Bay via car. 75 minutes and still in the tunnel. Can't even see the light of Storrow Drive yet
