A truck overturned on Boston’s Storrow Drive ahead of the evening commute Tuesday.

The top of the van was completely sheared off, and gas was leaking from the vehicle.

The driver of the van told NBC10 Boston that he was driving in from Maine and had no idea the bridge would be so low. He said he didn't see any of the warning signs along the roadway.
