Coke truck being turned around on Storrow Drive

Frog Lane Harpy had no choice but to watch State Police help the driver of a Coke truck turn around and not storrow:

Squished truck

Ed. note: Sometimes a picture isn't worth quite a thousand words. I originally wrote the sign took out the truck, based on the photo. In fact, the photo shows where the driver stopped after hitting the Silber Footbridge, which is what State Police said and I missed in my zeal for a funny headline. I've corrected the headline and post.

Police report Storrow truck drivers batted .333 this morning: One cracked his truck open like a walnut while two others managed to avoid the embarrassment - if not the tickets State Police routinely hand out to drivers who manage to get on the truck-unfriendly road. Read more.

Storrowing Week continues with a driver who wedged his box truck into the Bowker Overpass at the Fenway exits on Storrow outbound this morning. State Police report they had to shut the right lane at Fenway exits to get the thing out. Eye-in-the-sky video of the non-motile truck.

Shortly before 1 p.m, State Police reported somebody drove an "overheight" truck right into the bottom of a bridge on the outbound side. No injuries, but the right travel lane had to be shut while the remains of the truck were extracted. WCVB has more.

Somebody with a better calendar.

Storrowed rental truck on Storrow Drive

Around 11 p.m. on Monday, just before the end of another Allston Christmas, the driver of a rental truck made contact with the Silber Way footbridge on Storrow Drive, as Chris shows us.

Now, the truck is facing inbound on the outbound side of Storrow; in an attempt to get it out. Presumably, they eventually figured it out. Another view, by KMV: Read more.

Bridge demolishs truck

Some time before 8:25 p.m. or so, when Dev arrived at the scene, the driver of a box truck learned his truck was no match for the Grand Junction train bridge just before the BU Bridge, where Soldiers Field Road inbound becomes Storrow Drive. The judges rate this 9/10, deducting a point because the truck did not disgorge its contents all over the road.

At 3:25 p.m., State Police reported that Soldiers Field Road in Allston was shut inbound at North Harvard thanks to another box truck driver thinking he could squeeze under a bridge, only it turns out he couldn't.

Truck stuck at East Street bridge in Dedham

Don Reisner spotted this stuck truck at the East Street bridge in Dedham late this afternoon (if you thought they'd fixed the bridge, you're thinking of the East Street bridge next door in Westwood).

Dedham train bridge turns into Prime location for a storrowing.

What the State Police called an overheight tractor trailer got up close and personal with the Dartmouth Street footbridge on the inbound side of Storrow Drive right in the middle of rush hour this morning. Everybody had a hearty chuckle, especially the people who got stuck in a backup that extended back to North Harvard Street on Soldiers Field Road.

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.

Box truck narrowly avoids storrowing

A box-truck driver decided discretion was the better part of valor and hit the brakes a couple feet short of a Storrow bridge rather than getting up to ramming speed this afternoon, DF reports.
