Truck torn to pieces after clipping Memorial Drive overpass

CAMBRIDGE, MASS. (WHDH) - A box truck was torn to pieces Friday after clipping an overpass in Cambridge.

The truck was traveling east on Memorial Drive at around 5 p.m. when it struck the overpass. A 9-foot clearance sign is clearly posted in the area. The truck was said to be 13 feet high.

The truck, run by a seafood company from Gloucester, left crabs and clams strewn across the road. The entire eastbound lane was blocked off for hours so the mess could be cleaned up.

No one was injured in the crash. State Police said the driver, a 30-year-old man from Salem, was cited.
