An accident on Soldiers Field Road on February 21 around 8:30AM erupted into road rage when the one driver chased another into the nearby McDonald’s. The perpetrator smashed the window shades of the victim’s truck and kicked it repeatedly, trying to get him out of the vehicle. He, no fool, called the police instead. The perpetrator, a bit of a fool, admitted to officers he had done all of the above, and was arrested.
A bus carrying 42 passengers hit the Western Avenue underpass on Soldiers Field Road at 7:42PM today. The rescue of occupants took a little more than an hour, according to the Boston Fire Department. The chartered Philadelphia-bound coach had just left Harvard. While most people’s injuries did not appear serious, a few people were removed with back boards.
UPDATE: One person has life-threatening injuries, according to Boston EMS’s Twitter feed. The bus was removed early this morning. More here.
