Claire Sadar reports that sometime this morning, the driver of a big rig coming up from Wolcott Square in Readville wedged his truck right into the underpass for the train tracks there, learning why there's a sign at the end of Meadow Road out of the old Stop & Shop complex that warns truck drivers not to turn left. Needless to say, the underpass, decades old and built of stone, won the battle.
