Moving truck was heading west on Snell Street 8:20 AM
The truck eating bike path bridge scored another meal this morning as a moving van found out the hard way about the narrow, not-overly-tall bridge over Snell Street.
Fortunately no injuries to the occupants or the bridge but the truck will need some tender loving care before it rejoins the fleet.
More damage caused by coming out than going in
The state replaced the old Central Mass Railway bridge in the summer of 2012 ,which did raise it one foot from 9.6 feet high to the current 10.6 feet, although the narrow width stayed the same.
Looks like the truck made it pretty far under the bridge before contact took place so it was probably not like hitting a solid brick wall.
State should think about placing their sign a tad higher up
Although if the driver had tried this three years ago when the bridge was a foot lower the impact would probably have been a tad more explosive.
Mass Dept of Transportation bridge inspector arrives 10:20 AM
