It takes a big crane to lift a big truck. Photo by Tony Bove.
Cambridge Day has the blow by blow of the big-rig driver getting his truck stuck on a railing on Alewife Brook Parkway at the Fresh Pond Mall.
Looks like an Ever Givening.
It's fun to imagine how a car would behave if it ramped off it -- double Axel, maybe? I had never considered how a truck making a narrow turn would handle it, though.
That isn't that narrow a turn. It is a wide single lane slip lane with a easy radius flowing onto a two-lane roadway.
My brain hurts trying to think about how exactly the driver managed to do that.
I think the driver just misjudged it or their speed.
but it looks like the driver made too tight a turn (hugging the curb) even though they could have handled it just fine.
...dragging the back end over the guardrail. I know that spot. That took some willful ignorance.
you've gotta understand, trucks are going to hit you (and then get stuck on top of you).
