Mass. State Police Upset No One Called Them After Two Teens Rode on Back of Tractor-Trailer

Lots of people took pictures and posted them on Facebook, the police said, but nobody called them


State Police are upset no one called them about a dangerous incident on the Southeast Expressway that people photographed, but didn't report.

Troopers posted a photo of the stunt on their Facebook page Wednesday.

It shows two teens riding on the back of a tractor-trailer Tuesday afternoon on I-93 in Dorchester.

"We would like to remind the public how unsafe and illegal this is. This photograph and other similar photographs are circulating regarding this incident. The Massachusetts State Police did not receive any phone calls regarding this incident as it was occurring, yet several drivers took photographs of it," State Police said in the Facebook statement.
