Like football, storrowing is a game of inches. Magic was on hand to see the proof of that this morning on Huntington Avenue outbound at Mass. Ave., where a trucker found himself in quite a pickle - he couldn't go forward because it looked for sure like he'd rip the roof off his truck. And he couldn't go backwards because, well, this is Boston and the traffic had piled up behind him.
Or so it seemed. And then, she continued, the hero nobody asked for, but the hero the times demanded emerged - a driver in a van heading inbound:
when I got there, it looked like they were trying to back up, but the line of cars behind them either didn’t realize or didn’t care. so they were trying different angles. Eventually, the van in the oncoming lane stopped at the lowest point and its driver got out and was able to guide them through.
