Storrowed

By - 6/6/15 - 10:07 am

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.

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.

Rory Nolan gives us another view.

Wonder what that "Clearance" sign in the photo by P. Cheung reads:

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.

Storrowed truck peeled back on Soldiers Field Road in Boston

State Police report that shortly after 1 p.m., the driver of a box truck became the driver of a storrowed box truck thanks to a low-hanging bridge on Soldiers Field Road inbound, near where it turns into Storrow Drive.

As a result of the driver's reading problems, one lane had to be shut until the newly shorn truck could be removed.

Rental truck stuck on Storrow Drive in Boston

Roving UHub photography Anthony Macchi couldn't rove very far around 11:30 this morning thanks to the driver of a U-Haul truck that suddenly realized he or she wasn't going to come out of the Storrow tunnel unscathed.

"Thought we were in the clear after the 1st," he writes.

Stuck truck on Storrow Drive in Boston

A truck driver with cat-like reflexes managed to avoid a full storrowing around 10:30 a.m. Michael Cotrone was on hand to record the scene and, who knows, sell commemorative copies to the driver.

A truck driver got an introduction to the immutable nature of Storrow Drive bridges and overpasses tonight at Fiedler Footbridge eastbound and now there's debris everywhere, a truck with a newly storrowed roof peeled back like a can of sardines and a driver who probably wishes he were someplace else.

Almost stuck truck at Storrow Drive entrance

GM2059 shows us a near-Storrowing around noon at a Storrow Drive entrance. Guess there's no question this time whether or not there's a warning sign in place. The State Police cruiser on the left is blocking the road so the driver can back up, of course.
