UPDATED with more details from State Police.

Storrow Drive outbound by the Esplanade became mess shortly after 11:25 a.m. due to a pileup caused by two 17-year-olds from Brighton in a stolen car who proved unable to drive very well.

State Police report that after smashing into four cars, the two men inside jumped out and tried to escape by swimming in the Charles. They failed at that as well, however, and are now in custody.

Shortly after 10 a.m., State Police reported a truck driver heading out of town on Storrow Drive managed to smash his truck into the Bowker overpass, and now his truck is stuck there.

Cruisers enroute. Expect delays.

Stuck truck on Storrow Drive

Good Lord! Shawn the roving UHub photographer wasn't roving very much around 6:40 a.m. when he took this photo of a blessed truck on everybody's favorite river road, the one with all the "CARS ONLY" signs at the entrance ramps:

When Storrow is bumper to bumper at 6:30 in the morning, you know there’s a truck.

Stuck truck on Storrow Drive

Only a few hours after the Silber footbridge decapitated a truck, a slightly more alert truck driver narrowly managed to avoid a similar fate - and luckily for him, fellow commuters, such as Scrams, were in no mood to get out of their cars and tell him what they thought of having their rush hour extended.
