A truck hit a Hanover Street tree on Friday morning in front of the Cantina Italiana restaurant.

Workers took it down quickly noting it was decayed and readily ripped off. An hour later, the truck was freed by using a chainsaw to release the branches wedged on the truck.

  1. > noting it was decayed
    It most certainly was not decayed. I have pictures of the trunk from this morning as well as pictures of it with leaves last summer. Things tend to be readily “ripped off” when struck by 40,000 lb tractor trailers.

    I wonder if the worker quoted has a reason to spin that narrative?

    • The driver spins that narrative because he does not want to take full responsibility for the damaged tree. Carelessness.
      Have you noticed that truck drivers also take wild guesses as to the height of bridges and look at the mishaps we’ve had… backed up traffic; damaged truck; perhaps damaged bridge.
