This is the LIRR overpass near our cottage. This is not a real accident. It is from a Netflix show "Friends from College" that shot an episode in our town.

I have been sitting at the train station when a truck hit the bridge. Once it was one of those POD like moving containers but with a tarp/canvas cover over an aluminum frame. Somebody's stuff need up all over Davis street.

Too many drivers not heading warnings or knowing the size of their load.

Prior proper planning prevents piss poor performance.

It is, but it isn't in Hillsboro, it's about 3 hours south of there in Hillsdale. Small, but important, difference to the people who live there.

I don't have Twitter so don't know if you can't edit posts, but the OP makes it clear in the follow up posts that it's Hillsdale, MS.

On the Green Line at 11:00 on a glorious weather day that is also Pride Parade Day (12:00) and a home Rex Sox game (1:00)? Could the Green Line be any more crowded? Answer: no. That’s peak.

(Fenway station is one of the 3 Green Line stations with 2 blocks of our former condo in Boston.)
