A driver with a possible reading problem ignored the "CARS ONLY" signs and drove his big rig right into a bridge on Storrow Drive near Charles Circle around 9:30 a.m., spewing fluid from the electrical transformers all over the road and putting a major hurt on a Hyundai that had the misfortune of being in the adjoining lane just as one of the transformers was knocked free by the bridge, which, as always, refused to yield.
The Boston Fire Department reports the fluid was not hazardous at least, but State Police still had to shut the inbound side of the road until crews could sop up all the slippery liquid.
The department adds nobody was injured in the storrowing, which, if there were judges for such things, would have gotten high marks for the complete wedging effect, the disgorgement of both solids and liquids and the complete disruption of many people's travel plans.
