Bridge demolishs truck

Some time before 8:25 p.m. or so, when Dev arrived at the scene, the driver of a box truck learned his truck was no match for the Grand Junction train bridge just before the BU Bridge, where Soldiers Field Road inbound becomes Storrow Drive. The judges rate this 9/10, deducting a point because the truck did not disgorge its contents all over the road.

At 3:25 p.m., State Police reported that Soldiers Field Road in Allston was shut inbound at North Harvard thanks to another box truck driver thinking he could squeeze under a bridge, only it turns out he couldn't.

What the State Police called an overheight tractor trailer got up close and personal with the Dartmouth Street footbridge on the inbound side of Storrow Drive right in the middle of rush hour this morning. Everybody had a hearty chuckle, especially the people who got stuck in a backup that extended back to North Harvard Street on Soldiers Field Road.

Two views of a truck that has had its roof peeled back by a Storrow Drive bridge

Roving UHub photographer Liz Robson got a good view of a freshly shaved box truck on Storrow Drive from the Fairfield Street footbridge this afternoon. The judges gave this storrowing high marks for style, but deducted points for the truck being empty and so having nothing to spew all over the road.

Jaili got a closeup of the newly jagged edges where the roof used to be on this good ol' truck out of Grapevine, TX: Read more.

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!
