Truck strikes ceiling in Sumner Tunnel, slows traffic
The Sumner Tunnel in Boston was reopened Tuesday afternoon after a truck hit the ceiling and stopped traffic for a time.
Massachusetts State Police said the truck got caught near the entrance to the tunnel on the East Boston Side. The tunnel goes under Boston Harbor to Logan Airport from Route 1A.
Police said they were alerted to the crash after a MassDOT employee saw it happen on a security camera and called them.
FOX 25 viewers tweeted that they were stuck in traffic for more than an hour because of the incident.
The truck, which is owned by McCoy National Lease, Inc., of Green Bay, Wis., was removed after its tires were lowered. All lanes of the tunnel were reopened at about noon. No structural damage was found.
