No, no ...

Storrowing will never not be funny, no matter where it is.

At least as long as nobody is hurt and it doesn't take out the Red Line with it, that is.

Poop is not a laughing matter. Ok, it actually is, but not when it's all over the place.

There was no tearing off of roofs nor a flip over.

Well, he tried

It's not his fault he's driving some solidly built contraption instead of a tissue-paper-thin box truck ...

Looks like one of those

Looks like one of those trucks that clears out sewer pipes. Despite not tipping over, I bet the dollar value of the damage is far greater than any box truck.

It's nice when uhub can quickly explain why there was an cacophony of sirens in your neighborhood during the morning routine.

I was passing nearby around 10:30 and went to look at what was going on -the road was still closed and the truck about to be towed away. Interestingly, there is a sign that clearly states 13'6" on the bridge and the vacuum truck has a decal on it (not visible on the pictures above) that says 13'6". One of these things had to be a little off.

Sometimes they forget to

Sometimes they forget to adjust the sign after repaving, which could add a few inches to the road surface. I know a trucker this happened to. He said he got out of his truck with a can of spray paint and painted over the "6"" on the sign himself while he waited.

The truck's height could also change a few inches depending on the load it's carrying (although I would hope that the height they put on the sticker is what was measured when the truck was completely unladen, plus a couple inches for a safety margin).

13.6 vs 13.6

If the bridge in the truck were the same height would you have driven under it?

Who’s the company ? Where

Who’s the company ? Where are their DOT serial numbers on truck?

Hopefully MSP or BPD. Didn’t let them get away not having that.
