State Police report the truck, carrying mail, somehow slid down a long embankment from Rte. 128 north near the ramp to the turnpike and Rte. 30 just before noon. The driver, who can't swim, managed to get onto the top of his cab, from which he was rescued by Weston firefighters. The Newton Fire Department reports he was taken to a local hospital for observation.
Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!
Even if he could swim
going into the water on purpose this time of year would have been a big mistake.
I’ve done it.
On purpose. It feels great!
I don’t think he felt so good though.
I don't suppose he had a portable sauna
stashed away in the back of the truck so he could warm up again afterwards.
That would have been sweet if he did.
Yeah, well don't try this at home, kids,
unless you are a professional and are prepared for it.
Prep step one:
Learn to swim.
mmmm - more like cartwheels into the Charles
there's video - didn't stick the landing
