Truck storrowed at Westwood train bridge; Franklin Line service a mess

Nice day for fare increases and a new operator, but you can't blame this on the T: Around 6:15 a.m., the driver of a box truck managed to wedge his truck firmly into the train bridge at East Street and Carroll Avenue, just before the Islington stop. All sorts of delays on the inbound Franklin Line, of course. There are also delays on the Providence/Stoughton Line.
