BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Despite warnings year after year, during the busy Boston move-in season trucks continue to face the "storrowed." Boston saw its first "storrowing" of the month on Thursday after a U-Haul truck had its roof peeled off from a low-bearing overpass on Storrow Drive.

"We mainly just tell them to stay away from Storrow Drive because none of our trucks can really go on Storrow Drive, I mean the vans can but we even tell them to keep those from that area," the General Manager of U-Haul in Hyde Park Darren Spriggs told WBZ's Kim Tunnicliffe.

September 1 is Boston's biggest move-in day from many leases starting and college students returning for the fall semester. The move-in day is widely known throughout the city and in Allston it even has a nickname, "Allston Christmas" from all of the items left on the street during the moving process.

"We probably got 30 to 40 trucks here on the lot, we've sent out each truck two times a day and it's probably been like that for the past week," Spriggs said.

He told Tunnicliffe that U-Haul's own insurance doesn't typically cover overhead damage, so the best advice he can give to U-Haul renters is to stay away from Storrow Drive and all the river roads.
