An RV from New York had a mini storrowing incident a couple of hours ago. After hitting the "Cars Only" sign at the Mass Ave. underpass on Memorial Drive the completely unfazed RV managed to just barely slip under the bridge, however the AC unit on its roof did not. Hitting the concrete at about 25-30mph it disintegrated and showered the NY plated Chevy behind it with metal scraps. The RV seemed just as non-plussed about the hit as when it hit the sign and continued at the same speed until the next u-turn point. Welcome to our city!
