BOSTON, Mass. — A truck’s roof was completely sheered off after it struck an overpass in Boston on Thursday as many college students moved back to the area for the start of a new semester.
A U-Haul truck crashed into a bridge that runs over Soldiers Field Road near Harvard Stadium in the city’s Allston Section shortly before 12 p.m.
Video from the showed heavy damage to the U-Haul, which appeared to filled with brown moving boxes.
The crash happened just hours after the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation tweeted, “Trucks and oversized vehicles are prohibited from Storrow Drive and Soldiers Field Road in Boston and Memorial Drive in Cambridge due to low clearance of various overpasses on those parkways.”
DCR officials also urged the drivers of vehicles over 9 feet in height to find another route.
The bridge was closed for inspection following the crash.
There were no reported injuries.
