WBZ shows us a what a beached cement truck looks like after it rolled over around 5 a.m. on the ramp from the Tobin that leads to I-93 south and Storrow Drive. State Police held off recovery efforts so that other drivers could squeeze by in the one remaining lane. The ramp was due to be shut at 9 a.m. to let crews get the truck out of there.

Two views of a truck that has had its roof peeled back by a Storrow Drive bridge

Roving UHub photographer Liz Robson got a good view of a freshly shaved box truck on Storrow Drive from the Fairfield Street footbridge this afternoon. The judges gave this storrowing high marks for style, but deducted points for the truck being empty and so having nothing to spew all over the road.

Jaili got a closeup of the newly jagged edges where the roof used to be on this good ol' truck out of Grapevine, TX: Read more.

Another truck storrowed

The bridges of the river roads (and Dorchester) put a few more notches in their support beams this year as truck drivers continued to either drive into them or had to make an ignominious reverse drive of shame after narrowly avoiding a haircut caused by not paying attention to those "CARS ONLY" signs: Read more.

Near Storrowing by a bus

Or is that side of the BU Bridge still technically Soldiers Field Road? In any case, if he has any passengers, they're probably relieved he had good enough reflexes to stop before plowing into the lower train bridge there.

Storrowed truck on Storrow Drive

Good thing he wasn't hauling anything hazardous, eh? Photo by Tracy Walsh.

Sometime around 1:30 a.m., a semi driver thought it would be a good idea to get on Storrow Drive inbound. The train bridge near BU quickly informed him otherwise by turning his big rig into a much smaller rig.

Rick Macomber shows us the view from the other side of the bridge, which, of course, is famous for being the only place in America where you can smash a truck under a train that is passing under a car while a plane flies overhead: Read more.
