A tractor-trailer crashed into and became stuck under a footbridge in Cambridge this afternoon while traveling on Memorial Drive, State Police said.
Carrying computers and computer parts, the truck hit the Magazine Street footbridge at about 2 p.m., said Sergeant Michael Popovics, a State Police spokesman.
At the time of the crash, police shut down the westbound side and detoured traffic off Memorial Drive. Eastbound traffic was not affected. By about 4 p.m., traffic was moving in both directions, and State Police expected to have the truck removed by 9 p.m., Popovics said.
