A truck carrying one of those POD things became a truck carrying pieces of one of those POD things this afternoon when its driver decided what the hell and took Storrow Drive westbound, at least until the top of his POD got destroyed by the BU Bridge. Read more.
Rick came across a freshly storrowed box truck being towed off Storrow Drive this afternoon after having an intimate moment with a footbridge.
Well, what do you know? There were several close calls, but no actual storrowings this weekend on either river road, at least as far as we could tell. One of the close calls came late tonight, when the driver of a Stop & Shop 18-wheeler, who you really would think would know better, started to turn towards Storrow Drive, before realizing the goof and backing up, as Ari Ofsevit shows us.
Rick Macomber chronicled a storrowing, shortly after 2 a.m. on the inbound side at the Longfellow.
The driver of this truck didn't shred it while making a run for Storrow Drive near Mass. Eye and Ear this morning. Shamus Moynihan provides the evidence. State and Boston Police had to shut the ramp while the driver backed up and awaited his obligatory ticket.
Kevin couldn't help but notice the flipped, storrowed box truck outbound by the Fenway/Kenmore exit on Storrow Drive around 5 p.m. (although seems the flipping happened a little after 4).

Machine on trailer, hit overpass, I-93 SB at x.3 in #Canton. No injuries. Left lane open.

If only that bridge were 12'1" instead of just 12', he might have made it. Instead the driver of this storrowed box truck now has to explain to the state troopers why he ignored the CARS ONLY signs, in a classic Storrow Drive tableau captured by Raymond the roving UHub photographer at 9:06 this morning.
Kara Sassone found yet another truck driver astute enough to not plow into a bridge after ignoring the CARS ONLY sign on Storrow Drive this morning.
Kevin reports a truck driver who barely cleared the BU footbridge outbound this morning was gunning for the next bridge, but was pulled over by a state trooper who stopped him from testing his luck a second time and forced him to slowly back up under the footbridge and into one of those emergency cutouts to await the swift administration of justice. Kevin photographed the truck as it backed up.
