Car Carrier Damages Six Lights In Tip O’Neill Tunnel

BOSTON (CBS) – State Police responded to an accident at the southbound entrance to the Tip O’Neill Tunnel Wednesday night.

An over-height car carrier struck some lights inside the tunnel. One car was struck by a falling light, but the driver was not injured.

That vehicle was a 2010 Cadillac DTS limo and sustained minor damage to the windshield.

The Department of Transportation says six lights were damaged and had to be taken down. They will be replaced at a later time.

Two lanes of traffic were shut down for a time while crews removed the lights.

State Police say the driver will be cited for a height restriction violation.
