The East Street bridge frequently causes damage to box trucks and other vehicles that are too tall to fit underneath the bridge.

Some chrome on the truck was damaged in addition to the fire ladder, but the bridge did not suffer any structural damage.

No one was injured and the driver of the fire truck was not cited.

Westwood Police said the MBTA has begun designs for an update to the bridge that they hope will alleviate issues of crashes in the area.
