Take note, kids: THIS is how you storrow a truck.
Rebecca found herself behind a wayward U-Haul on Storrow Drive inbound shortly after 12:30 p.m. today.
A truck carrying one of those POD things became a truck carrying pieces of one of those POD things this afternoon when its driver decided what the hell and took Storrow Drive westbound, at least until the top of his POD got destroyed by the BU Bridge. Read more.
Rick came across a freshly storrowed box truck being towed off Storrow Drive this afternoon after having an intimate moment with a footbridge.
Well, what do you know? There were several close calls, but no actual storrowings this weekend on either river road, at least as far as we could tell. One of the close calls came late tonight, when the driver of a Stop & Shop 18-wheeler, who you really would think would know better, started to turn towards Storrow Drive, before realizing the goof and backing up, as Ari Ofsevit shows us.
Rick Macomber chronicled a storrowing, shortly after 2 a.m. on the inbound side at the Longfellow.
The driver of this truck didn't shred it while making a run for Storrow Drive near Mass. Eye and Ear this morning. Shamus Moynihan provides the evidence. State and Boston Police had to shut the ramp while the driver backed up and awaited his obligatory ticket.
Kevin couldn't help but notice the flipped, storrowed box truck outbound by the Fenway/Kenmore exit on Storrow Drive around 5 p.m. (although seems the flipping happened a little after 4).
Liz Covart reports nobody seemed injured, at least, in this crash on Storrow Drive outbound shortly after 6 a.m.
Rick Schimpf paid his regards to the bus whose driver rather suddenly discovered was somewhat taller than 11 feet, shortly before 11 a.m. on Storrow Drive inbound by the BU exit.
Lisa Jacobson captured this near miss on the inbound side of Storrow Drive this afternoon.
The tire-eating pothole is inbound just past the Kenmore ramp, so might be time to seek one of those alternate routes.
If only that bridge were 12'1" instead of just 12', he might have made it. Instead the driver of this storrowed box truck now has to explain to the state troopers why he ignored the CARS ONLY signs, in a classic Storrow Drive tableau captured by Raymond the roving UHub photographer at 9:06 this morning.
