A tractor-trailer tried to make it under the Longfellow Bridge at Memorial Drive in Cambridge early Tuesday morning and failed. The truck hit the bridge around 6 a.m. and ended up stuck. Memorial Drive at the Longfellow Bridge was partially closed for about three hours until the truck was taken apart and removed. All lanes opened around 9:30 a.m., according to police. The Department of Transportation will also inspect the bridge to make sure the area is safe. State police say a passenger in the truck was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
