Westborough – A truck hit Westborough’s East Main St. train bridge, March 10, leaving a spectacular sight of crumpled metal in its wake.
A photo taken shortly after 12 p.m., indeed, shows a large white semi truck come to a stop next to Dunkin Donuts on the northern side of the bridge. Police were on hand while the truck’s roof lay dragged behind it.
Trucks have hit the train bridge before as town officials have said private GPS services frequently route truckers through downtown. Trying to counteract those issues, those officials have implemented everything from bilingual signage to flashing lights warning of this span’s low clearance.
As crashes have kept happening, this one does stand out. Rather than getting stuck when he crashed, like many other truckers, this driver kept driving, clearing the bridge but also removing his entire roof.
