I don't know about rollover part, but some sort of major crash near the old toll plaza position on the upper level, yes.

Tobin Bridge is currently closed inbound due to an accident at the Everett Ave onramp.

Outbound is fine.

I live in an apartment with a dumpster, so hopefully it won't blow away but we'll see.

You see a fallen light pole.

I see an awesome space saver for the next snowstorm!
