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.

Mike G watched crews taking down one of the piers that used to hold up the Casey Overpass last night.

Ed. note: They could defray some of the costs by letting people with some aggression to get out get five minutes behind the controls of one of those things.
