Surprising Somerville storrowing

A truck driver managed to find out how to mold his 18-wheeler into exciting new shapes today after challenging an underpass of McGrath Highway at Washington Street in Somerville.
Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!
The company name on the truck
The company name on the truck is "Unlimited Carrier." It seems they consider themselves unlimited by height restrictions.

Don't mess with McGrath
A few weeks ago I came across a tractor trailer that had somehow managed to straddle the raised median on McGrath adjacent to the Star Market. In that configuration it was completely immobilized. But it did result in a whole bunch of people standing around the truck looking perplexed.
While the driver waits for a tow...
He can walk a block to the Burger King, yay!

The overpass isn't posted with a height restriction.

Doesn't seem likely
The cardboard boxes I've gotten wholesale (12-packs of 1-lb jars) have dull red printing on the top and grey printing on the sides.

Where’s the Fluff?!?!
The rear of the truck looks
The rear of the truck looks like part of a mobius strip. Definitely an exciting and interesting shape.
Perhaps the driver wanted to
Perhaps the driver wanted to be an avant-garde sculptor but ended up driving a truck because they have to make a living, and finally they found a way to combine their job with their passion. Understandable.
Pedants 'R' Us
Technically not a Storrowing since it appears to be a sideswipe and not trying to fit a too-high vehicle under a comically low underpass.
Points, though, for creatively damaging a trailer in exciting new ways.
