(AP) Shortly following the news that Roger would not be allowed to pitch in the 2008 Olympic Games, the Roger Clemens Fan Van was involved in a fiery wreck on Commonwealth Ave. in Boston, MA this morning. Amazingly, no one was injured in the crash.
The "van," which is now an old delivery truck, was carrying "medical supplies" to Logan Airport when it caused a series of accidents this morning as it careened down several blocks, striking eight other vehicles before it burst into flames, according to witnesses and a police spokesman.
No injuries have been reported, but the crashes forced the closure of Commonwealth Avenue in both directions, a police spokesman said. Traffic has begun moving again on Commonwealth Avenue, but a portion of nearby Brighton Avenue is expected to remain closed for much of the day while crews clean up the fire scene.
"It's a blessing from God," said one witness, who requested anonymity. "If Roger Clemens' life hadn't fallen to a level of complete and utter failure, there may have been a fan on there."
