Roving UHub reporter Katy B. watched the action this morning when a box-truck driver came face to face with a "CARS ONLY" sign on a ramp to Storrow Drive: He said screw this and hit the accelerator.

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.

An RV from New York had a mini storrowing incident a couple of hours ago. After hitting the "Cars Only" sign at the Mass Ave. underpass on Memorial Drive the completely unfazed RV managed to just barely slip under the bridge, however the AC unit on its roof did not. Hitting the concrete at about 25-30mph it disintegrated and showered the NY plated Chevy behind it with metal scraps. The RV seemed just as non-plussed about the hit as when it hit the sign and continued at the same speed until the next u-turn point. Welcome to our city!

Somebody almost storrowed on Memorial Drive

Oh, so close! A roving UHub reporter watched a near-storrowing on Memorial Drive, at the Mass Ave. bridge underpass early this afternoon:

An MIT police officer saved the day, they flagged the college-aged U-Haul driver down and backed him up to the offramp to Mass Ave.

Truck about to go crunch in the Callahan Tunnel

EastieStrong, who just wants to get home, reports both lanes into the Callahan are way backed up due to a tractor-trailer with a driver with good enough reflexes to avoid having his vehicle peeled back like a can of sardines - so chalk this up as a near storrowing.

Truck stopped on Storrow Drive just in time

Sometime between 3 and 3:50 a.m., the driver of this box truck thought it would be a good idea to get on Storrow Drive towards Leverett Circle. It wasn't, as Chuck Fitzpatrick shows us.
