The driver of a box truck - and his passenger - were a bit luckier on Storrow Drive this morning than the driver of an 18-wheeler in Westborough, averting a storrowing inbound by maybe a couple feet, as KWAPT, who was not happy to get stuck in the resulting jam, shows us: Read more.

It's like the old bar joke: " 'Say, we don't get many big rigs in here.' 'At these heights, I can see why.' "
Alrighty then: A driver with a professional driver's license didn't plan out his route, ignored the "CARS ONLY" signs, got on Soldiers Field Road inbound overnight and, boom, storrowed his expensive vehicle smack into the Grand Junction train bridge by the BU Bridge. Read more.
Leslee got a great view from the Fairfield Street pedestrian bridge of a truck whose driver got a fresh haircut at the Mass. Ave. Bridge - and then decided that was good enough and so didn't go for a double storrowing at Fairfield.

Nothing does a storrowing quite like the Fenway/Kenmore exit off Storrow Drive - the curve means trucks catch the bottom of the upper ramp at an angle, so not only are they peeled open, they're left at quite the jaunty angle.
