Truck is wedged in real good - and looks like it dented the bridge, which is not something you usually see in your more mundane storrowings involving box trucks. State Police advise:

Roosevelt Circle (Route 28 over Route 93) is closed. Avoid this area for the remainder of evening.

If you're going to storrow, do it in style with an 18-wheeler: WBZ has some video of the driver doing the Backup of Shame after losing the top of his trailer at Mass. Ave. One point deducted for not having tons of stuff to spill all over the road, though.

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.
