BOSTON (WHDH) - A dump truck struck the top of a tunnel in Boston Wednesday, drawing an emergency response and prompting a temporary ramp closure, according to the Massachusetts State Police. 

Police said a call came in reporting the crash just after 1 p.m. after the truck hit the tunnel entrance on the Purchase Street ramp toward the westbound lanes of the Mass Pike and I-93 South. 

Officials reopened the ramp after a brief closure.

State police said no structural damage was found after this crash, adding that the truck driver was cited for an unsecured load, failure to check height clearance and ignoring a height warning signal in connection with the incident.
