DevNullToYou shows us this morning's near Storrowing.
Mike Piehl shows us the remains of a decapitated truck on Storrow this morning.
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 thereâ€™s a truck.
Kara Sassone shows us the reason Soldiers Field Road is backed up onto Storrow Drive this morning. Or as she puts it:
Thanks. Thanks a lot.
Oh, lookee here at Storrow Drive inbound this morning, as Kara Sassone shows us. At least his brakes worked.
Jared Dobson can only utter a hearty "Tis the season!" as he waits to get by a moving van with a driver alert enough to stop before slamming into a Storrow footbridge shortly before 6:30 p.m., if not alert enough to pay attention to any of the "CARS ONLY" signs earlier on his journey. Read more.
Kevin, meanwhile, gives us the eye-in-the-sky view from the footbridge:
A Cardi's truck driver with a possible reading deficit missed storrowing by inches this morning, jamming up traffic, Tim reports.
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.
Shortly after 7:30 a.m., a truck driver seemed to figure he felt more like a car driver this morning and didn't realize that wasn't the case he suddenly found himself unable to get under the footbridge just before the Kenmore/Fenway exits westbound, as hkergrrl shows us.
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.
5:45 and weâ€™ve got a truck stuck on Storrow.
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.
Rory Nolan gives us another view.
Wonder what that "Clearance" sign in the photo by P. Cheung reads:
Anne Mostue reports a truck is wedged under the BU Bridge, which explains why State Police have blocked the ramp inbound in Allston.
Matt Soleyn reports that around 8:50 a.m., a bus from Fairfield University was about a half-mile before the Fenway exit inbound:
Trying to backup on Storrow Drive East in rush hour. At least it didn't hit an overpass.
A bus driver who decided, what the hell, and plowed right through one of those CARS ONLY signs discovered just in time that the BU Bridge inbound would not let him pass. Naturally, at rush hour, this was a bit less than optimal for all the drivers behind him. Or as Eddy S. tweeted at 6 p.m.:
Been in the same spot for about 15 mins under western ave bridge. If you can exit do it!
Shortly after 9 a.m., the looming BU Bridge helped the driver of one of those big tour buses suddenly realized that maybe those signs at the entrance to Soldiers Field Drive were for reals and he probably shouldn't have gotten on the road.
J. Alain Ferry reports. Fortunately for the drivers behind him, he was able to pull over into one of those rare break-down spots along the road.
State Police report a truck storrowed on Storrow Drive outbound at the Longfellow Bridge and got wedged in real good around 3:30 p.m. All of its remains were hauled away by 4:20 p.m., however.
