In case the screencap intrigued you, here's the backstory on the fire that happens toward the end. No humans were hurt, though a lot of lobsters got prematurely cooked.
On July 1st, 2014, a truck carrying 7,000 pounds of lobster slammed into an MBTA rail bridge in Westwood, sparking a fire and huge problems for commuters. The driver of the 13-foot tall Ryder rental truck tried to clear the 10-foot, 6-inch East Street overpass around 4:50 a.m. and failed. The truck burst into flames after the crash. Surveillance video captured the impact. The truck driver, Todd Preston, 26, of Portland, Maine has been charged with operating a motor vehicle negligently so as to endanger and failure to obey municipal signs, according to Westwood Police.
