11 foot bridge. 14 foot truck. Poor math skills.

Seems like an 18-wheeler collided with the pedestrian bridge over Memorial Drive between the BU Bridge by Trader Joe's & Microcenter in Cambridge.

Apparently the driver could neither perform simple math (a 14 foot tall truck is higher than a bridge with an 11 foot clearance) nor read simple English ("NO TRUCKS").

* * * * *


The story ran earlier on Universal Hub, along with lots of fun & informative commentary about what happened, why, and how this can be prevented in the future -- resepectively, "he seemed to be lost", "he missed a turn into Microcenter / he was an idiot", and "monster trap".

Bostonist used this version of the photo (there were of course lots of others, it happened hours before I got there, see UH for more) on their Bite Size News piece for today. But the link on their site is broken, so you just have to trust me on that one. I guess. [UPDATE to UPDATE: Bostonist may have fixed the link. Or not. I'm having 50-50 luck loading it. Go figure.]

A sampling of the other photos (some of which will stop working, because Twitpic sucks but people keep using it anyway):
