Truck Rolls into Westport River, MA
May 2, 2013
EastBayRI.com: A brief stop by the West Branch went badly for a Westport [Massachusetts] fish truck driver Tuesday evening [April 30]. He was standing next to the truck taking in the view at the top of the Hix Bridge boat ramp when the truck started to roll.
His efforts to hold it back were fruitless and soon the truck was drifting out into the river. The heavy front end went under, but the stern end, the airtight refrigerated box marked F/V TNT, stayed afloat and the truck wound up briefly wedged beneath the [Rte. 88] bridge.
