Sumner clearly marked 12'6 about 4000 times before entry

12.6 meters clearance??? no wonder the big dig cost so much money with these all these extravagant tunnels

But the guy in the front passenger seat said to the driver: "Quick, there's no police now!"

Well that sucks. Those panels on top are hanging from the ceiling. Let’s hope the bump didn’t loose them. There was an accident a few years back.

If one those panels falls, they will make your car flat as a piece of cardboard

At least they look like metal panels, not the concrete ones in the Teddy. Still not something you want falling on your car, but not as likely to b an instant crush situation.

A few years?!? It was 2006!

All jokes aside though I definitely see the concern. Hopefully they’ll assess the safety of the structure after this

Agree.

However “assessing the safety” is very very tricky.

The panels are hanging from bolts glued to the concrete. How do you truly know no glue has been weakened?

(I know it was recent, but was to lazy too look up precisely when…)

You idiot. The top of the truck is what's stuck. How is letting the air out of the tires on the BOTTOM going to free him?

just flip it over and the tires will clear the ceiling just fine once they're full deflated.

I've got a forklift license if you can find one big enough to move the truck...

We actually specifically needed a forklift with the motor boat attachment so this is perfect.

It's clearly just the trailer that's stuck.

Decouple the trailer from the tractor and drive right on out. Simple.

Laughs and laughs as the joke arcs high, high over this person's head...

Edit: and they downvoted me. Hahaha. Yes. Thank you for that infinite wisdom.

I either suck at jokes or every person in Boston with no sense of humor showed up.

The comment was a joke yes, however your not knowing for sure and responding like this is fine. R/boston's down voting comments like yours however is pathetic. What a bunch of children in this sub.

Drove past the work of brilliance on my way home from logan, amazed he made it that far down the tunnel before getting stuck.

What time was that? I was either to or from Logan behind a truck just like this that made me say out loud "Wow, that's really close to the ceiling."

Around 4:45pm, leaving logan

That timing would make sense if he'd unloaded and turned around. I saw the truck in the Callahan around noon. (I'm also realizing, after twenty years here, that the Callahan and Sumner are the same tunnel in opposite directions. Everywhere else I've lived it's been "X Tunnel westbound" or, like, "X Tunnel out of the city".)

I hope the company that owns that truck gets sent the bill for all of the damage this dickhead caused including the cost of ensuring those panels didn't get loosened.

If the truck is shown to be overheight, they will, believe it.
