Reader report: Truck trouble south of The Junction

The photos are from Eric, who says this truck took a wrong turn down residential 41st SW south of The Junction around 11:15 am, “squashed” an SUV, and got stuck “near the Hudson stairs”:

Eric says he empathized: “Driver was really young. I used to drive big rigs, felt for him. He was planning on trying to reverse all the way to Edmunds. I tried to help for half an hour but had to leave.” We don’t know where the truck was trying to go, but the city does have a map of “major truck streets” – Fauntleroy, two blocks east, is the major one in that area.

    i know the trailer is pretty long but a fire truck would also have a difficult time navigating that area if needed. The blue car getting scraped is facing the wrong way, oh well. Who needs those big noisy trucks delivering food to us anyway right.

      Yes, the inanimate object jumped out in front of the big rig and caused this.

    That block is tricky for cars; I couldn’t image trying to snake a semi through there.

Sorry, comment time is over.
