Stuck truck at the Grand Junction Bridge

Ethan McCoy got a grand view of the storrowed box truck at the train tracks by the BU bridge (where Storrow turns into Soldiers Field Road outbound) shortly before 5 p.m. today. Looks like the driver doesn't follow DCR on Twitter.

Chris in 02134 spotted a rental-truck driver who was alert enough not to rip the top of his box truck off on a bridge at Bay State Road, if not alert enough not to get onto Storrow Drive in the first place: Read more.

Welcome to Boston, where Storrow Drive is beating the stuffing out of UHaul and Penske

Artist Eric Funk has come up with this design for pre-existing Boston residents. And it's available as a sticker, a tote bag and a print.

Near storrowing averted on Storrow Drive

Somebody hauling a boat learned first hand shortly after 1 p.m. that despite their names, the river roads aren't meant for watercraft. A Curiosity Machine chronicles his successful effort to avoid becoming the subject of a limerick like two Men from the Islands this week.

Ooh, and guess where he's from? Read more.

Storrowed U-Haul

Schmitt spotted this storrowing aftermath being hauled down a Back Bay street today. What makes it a bit unusual is that it's an actual U-Haul - most recent storrowings have involved anything but U-Haul box trucks.

WGBH posted a news clip from 1985, when the driver of an out-of-state moving van executed a perfect storrowing: Jammed his truck under a bridge, which peeled the roof off his truck and left stuff scattered all over the road: Read more.

Couch on Storrow Drive

Probably best not to ask how that couch wound up on Storrow Drive just before Tess got there, shortly before 2 p.m. You don't know where that thing has been.

The Dig reports DCR is soliciting bids for a $75,000 contract to create new signs that are somehow bolder and more, um, impactful, than the current "CARS ONLY" signs in preventing reading-impaired truckers from getting on the river roads.

State Police credit the lack of traffic early this morning for the lack of any crashes due to a Reading man speeding down I-93 southbound on the northbound side from Wilmington all the way to Leverett Circle, where he got on Storrow Drive the wrong way before finally getting cornered in a parking lot near Mass. General. Read more.

Storrowed truck on its side

The driver of a Frugal Furniture rig showed how it's done this morning on the Fenway off ramp from Storrow Drive outbound, delivering what passing photographer Charley A declared a solid storrowing.

Truck driver stopped before storrowing

Rob C reports the driver of this big rig realized in time what he was about to do and so saved his job and the time all the motorists around him would have lost and stopped before taking that dip onto Storrow Drive. "It was super awkward," at least, he adds.

Raughn Williams didn't like seeing the flashing blues in his rear view on Storrow Drive, so he sped away, rocketing across the Tobin Bridge and then down into Chelsea, where he crashed into two parked cars and got arrested and charged for the loaded gun he had in a pants leg, which might now mean up to ten years in federal prison, federal authorities say.
