About 11:01 p.m. eastern daylight time on Monday, July 10, 2006, a 1991 Buick passenger car occupied by a 46-year-old driver and his 38-year-old wife was traveling eastbound in the Interstate 90 connector tunnel in Boston, Massachusetts, en route to Logan International Airport. As the car approached the end of the Interstate 90 connector tunnel, a section of the tunnel's suspended concrete ceiling became detached from the tunnel roof and fell onto the vehicle. Concrete panels from the ceiling crushed the right side of the vehicle roof as the car came to rest against the north wall of the tunnel. A total of about 26 tons of concrete and associated suspension hardware fell onto the vehicle and the roadway. The driver's wife, occupying the right-front seat, was fatally injured; the driver was able to escape with minor injuries.
